The deadly 35W Bridge collapse in 2007 put "bridge safety" into the national spotlight.
Friday, Aug. 1, 2014, marks the seventh year since the structure fell into the Mississippi River during rush hour, killing 13 people and injuring 145 more.
The new bridge opened on Sept. 18, 2008, just before 5 a.m. It took only ten months to build.
But, less than seven years after the new bridge went up, a bridge inspection report by the Minnesota Department of Transportation shows the new bridge is aging.
KSTP sat down with four experts Friday to talk about bridge safety, along with the future of transportation.
