Get a feel for construction on the 35W bridge

Posted at 8:28 AM on May 22, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Tom Crann & company show us how intense it is to work on the 35W bridge. There's a lot of wind, an amazing amount of construction noise, and if you're not into heights... don't press play:

How do they do it? According to the video caption, "About 600 workers are working 12-hour shifts, 24-hours a day, seven days a week on both sides of the river to get the bridge rebuilt in the shortest amount of time possible."

Watch and comment on this and other videos from MPR.
