Failed Minneapolis bridge remains closed; monitoring continues

The 2,200-foot-long Martin Olav Sabo Bridge in Minneapolis remains closed to pedestrians and bicyclists after a broken anchor plate and snapped cable required the bridge to be closed in February. An anemometer and accelerometers are monitoring wind speeds and vibrations on the bridge -- which is for pedestrians and cyclists only -- to help determine what went wrong. The city could receive a report by the end of May from Wiss Janney Elstner Associates, which is probing the cause of the span's failure.
