As details of the Minnesota bridge collapse become clearer, the role of international freight carried by NAFTA superhighway trucks on I-35 remains an important backdrop of the human tragedy and the traffic nightmare the city is just now beginning to appreciate.

U.S. Navy divers have come to the scene to assist in efforts to find the eight people who remain missing since the bridge collapsed last Wednesday.

As Minneapolis and St. Paul struggle to re-route traffic, passenger and truck traffic along I-35 will be seriously disrupted, with increased congestion and costly travel delays until at least the end of next year, at the earliest.

According to a document titled "Bridge Facts" posted on the Minnesota Department of Transportation, or MNDOT, website, the bridge on I-35W carried 140,000 vehicles daily, including 4,760 commercial vehicles.

John Hausladen, president of the Minnesota Trucking Association, estimates the number of trucks crossing the bridge prior to its collapse was more like 5,700.

By comparison, truck traffic at Laredo, Texas - the busiest crossing point for trucks headed north into the U.S. - was approximately 3,994 per day, according to figures in January.

The Federal Highway Administration, or FHWA, characterizes Laredo as "the most important truck crossing on the United States/Mexican border." The MNDOT was warned that the volume of NAFTA trucks threatened the bridge.

The MNDOT document "Bridge Facts" points out Minneapolis span, despite the deficiencies noted in years of official reports, was not under any truck restrictions. At the time of collapse, it was considered safe, even for overweight truck loads of up to 136,000 pounds.
