No the bridge which collapsed is more south, follow the river south, past the 2nd set of rapids and there are 2 bridges next to each other.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/6927113.stm shows the view from the north bank.

So its the wider left hand bridge which collapsed when looking on the map

35W is three bridges downstream. (to the east) It the wider of the two bridges that are parallel to each other. Left one is 35W and the right one is the city street 10th ave. If anyone has any questions about this bridge (I work less than a mile from it) please contact me at herzey77@lycos.com and I will try to help.

Thanks!

Does anyone have any idea how deep and wide the river is at that point?
