If you have a fear traveling on or under bridges the FIU pedestrian bridge collapse may have added merit to that phobia. It turns out there a new bridge crossing the Mississippi River connecting Wisconsin to Minnesota that was designed by the same engineers of the fallen bridge in Florida.

One of the bridge crosses over the Mississippi between La Crosse, Wisconsin and La Crescent, Minnesota. According to Wisconsin State Journal, the FIGG Bridge Group (designer of the fallen FL bridge) designed the Interstate 35W bridge in Minnesota and another bridge in St. Paul.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the FIU bridge collapse and their families.
