Bridge Collapse Artifacts

Rusting beams from the Interstate 35W bridge that collapsed Aug. 1, 2007 in Minneapolis are seen on the floor of a Minnesota transportation department garage in Oakdale, Minn. on Tuesday, July 31, 2012. Wednesday, Aug. 1, marks the fifth anniversary of the collapse. To remember the bridge collapse, state historians preserved items they thought would vividly convey the chaotic scene that August evening in 2007. Five years later, most items collected from the rush-hour disaster that killed 13 and injured scores more remain mostly tucked away, held back partly by concern that emotions may be too raw for a display.
