35W Bridge: Link Roundup

I’m dumping the items that have caught my eye. I’d definitely recommend checking your favorite news outlet for the latest info (I recommend MPR or Channel 4000 (back online, just for bridge collapse coverage)).

    Bridge Watching

    How about a public project that lists bridges of interest; those who have a combined low ratings for safety and are highly trafficed. Armed with this list folks can assign themselves to the bridge and go take as many photos, videos and notes on structural details as possible. If we are lucky, some structural engineers who are game can join with teams of bridge analyzers.

    Postings of the photos, videos, notes and commentary on each bridge can be used to influence attention on bridges that appear to be in dire need of repair or replacement.

    Great list of links!

    I’m working on http://www.35WMemorial.com right now. It’s in a Wiki format. As it sits, I’m trying to bring folks together for discussion about the design of the memorial portion of the new bridge.
