MNDOT Uses “Smart Bridge Technology” To Study Defects

Major Freeway Bridge Collapses In Minneapolis During Rush Hour

Living in the Twin Ports, most of us probably cross one of the two major bridges in the St. Louis River Bay often – if not daily.  Crossing over from one city – and state – is so easy, it’s really second nature and we usually don’t even think about it.  That is – until something happens.  The 2007 collapse of the I-35 bridge over the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities is fresh enough in our collective mindset.

Even before the I-35 bridge collapse, the Minnesota Department of Transportation worked diligently to maintain the safety and integrity of our roadways.  However, a new “Smart Bridge Technology” being employed brings modern-era resources to help in the efforts of defect detection.  Recently, MNDOT officials shared the details about this new process with an article on  their Facebook page.
