The 40-year-old Interstate 35W Bridge over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minn., collapsed into the Mississippi River on Aug. 1, 2007, killing 13 people and injuring more than 100.
In November 2008, the National Transportation Safety Board cited errors in the original design of the gusset plates in the old bridge as the probable cause of the collapse.
Gusset plates are used to connect beams or truss members to load-bearing columns.
