Another (government-maintained) bridge in Minneapolis ready to collapse

The collapse of the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis on July 1, 2007, was a signal event.  It conveniently served statists in their call for more "investment" in the US's infrastructure -- American taxpayers being coerced into investing in Leviathan government.  But it also exposed the sorry state of governments' maintenance of the nation's bridges.

Today brings news that another -- albeit lesser -- bridge in Minneapolis over the Mississippi is in such a bad state of repair that it is closed for at least the next year to car and truck traffic.
