MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Many Minnesotans are taking a moment Saturday to remember the lives lost in the Interstate 35W bridge tragedy.

Saturday marks eight years since the collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis.

Thirteen people were killed and 145 others hurt when the bridge fell into the Mississippi River August 1, 2007.

The National Transportation Safety Board cited a design flaw as the likely main cause of the collapse.

Construction began immediately on a new bridge which opened on September 18, 2008.
