A year early? I thought it was already almost 20 years late! Anyhow, it will be nice when it's finished.

So this bridge will be completed prior to the 2017 date that was quoted? I hope so!

Let's run a light rail line right down the center and then down I94 to DT St. Paul.

What a complete waste of money. $700 MILLION for one bridge?

Interesting that Bachmann has no problem spending almost 3/4 of a Billion dollars. But if the money went for tax cuts for the middle class, she would have strongly voted against it. And here she portrays Graves as a big spender.

In all seriousness, becuase I simply don't know... can somebody tell me the reason for building this bridge? Why now and why here?
