Another bridge closing.

Breaking News: MN-DOT suddenly closed the Winona Main Channel Bridge on June 3, 2008, after it was discovered that the bridge had similar gusset plate problems as the I-35W and DeSoto Bridges. The gusset plates were only marginal to begin with, and showed extensive damage due to rust. It is not known how long the bridge will be closed, or if it can be repaired. The nearest river crossings are La Crosse and Wabasha.

Yes. I do feel like I'm living on the pages of Atlas Shrugged.
