When Minnesota’s construction season began this year, a parade of workers, including heavy equipment operators, stone movers, masons, electricians and landscapers, began putting the 35W bridge memorial together, and here’s the progress so far.

The newest additions are the 13 girders symbolizing the lives of the 13 people killed when the bridge collapsed on Aug. 1, 2007.

City officials say the dedication of the memorial is set for Monday, Aug. 1.

The memorial is on public land next to Gold Medal Park in downtown Minneapolis overlooking the Mississippi River.
