The new I-35W bridge

This new bridge, and particularly its center span, are quite something, although unfortunately in these pictures it can be hard to see due to the arch-shaped 10th Ave. SE bridge spans being right behind it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Anthony_Falls_(35W)_Bridge

The old bridge looked like it was made of toothpicks, and, according to the Wikipedia article about the bridge, the NTSB pretty much concluded that it was made of toothpicks and that’s why it collapsed.
