Memorial Day Rounds
The Five of us loaded up our bikes and made our usual Memorial Day rounds although this year instead of visiting Fort Snelling National Cemetery we substituted the I-35W Bridge site.
It is truly remarkable to see how much fabrication has taken place in such a short time. There were workers on site even today. I can tell you that seeing this structure in person confirms that this is a very different type of structure, both in design and scale, than the previous bridge.
On our last stop we toured the Minnehaha Falls area including a quick pass of Lock and Dam No. 1.
