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.
