I35W Bridge Streetviews

Google Maps streetview in Minneapolis includes the I35-W Bridge that collapsed on Wednesday, August 1, 2007. Thirteen people died in the tragedy and approximately one hundred more were injured.

According to Wikipedia "the bridge was inspected annually by Mn/DOT, although no inspection report was completed in 2007, due to the construction work." The Google streetview clearly shows the construction work on the bridge.
