GRAPHIC=Bridge Collapse The Transportation Secretary is


demanding a top- to- bottom review of
the nation's bridge inspection program.

She's alerted states to start
inspecting all bridges similar to the
one in Minneapolis that collapsed into
the Mississippi River.

The death toll from that collapse

remains at four-- with as many as 30
people still missing.

RECOVERY CREWS WARN THEIR WORK MAY TAKE

LIMITED

VISIBILITY . THEY TAKE TURNS SEARCHING
THE MURKY WATERS OF THE MISSISSIPPI

RIVER THIRTY MINUTES AT A TIME. IT'S
NOT EASY.



(SOT Inspector Jeff Storms/Hennepin Co.


Sheriff s Office): "The amount of

debris, the massive debris, the rebar
that is sticking out - all the things


that just become a hazard."



CONDITIONS ALLOW THE DIVERS TO WORK
ONLY DURING DAYLIGHT. THEY SAY THEY'RE

GIVING IT ALL THEY'VE GOT.



(SOT Shanna Hanson/Diver-814/233050):


"We're trained to do the job. You just

kind of go in and do it - you don't
think about it much till afterwards."



Jennifer Miller/stand-up

ALONGSIDE THE MISSION TO RECOVER
VICTIMS IS A STATE AND FEDERAL
INVESTIGATION

TO FIND ANSWERS. AND NOW NEW QUESTIONS
ARE BEING RAISED ABOUT WHETHER

OFFICIALS IGNORED WARNING SIGNS THE
BRIDGE WAS IN TROUBLE.



ENGINEERS SPOTTED STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS
IN THE BRIDGE AS FAR BACK AS 1990, BUT

STATE OFFICIALS THOUGHT REPAIRS AND
YEARLY INSPECTIONS WOULD BE ENOUGH TO

KEEP IT TOGETHER.



(SOT Governor Tom Pawlenty): "The


federal government did an assessment
based


on our inspections that they called
structurally deficient. There are
80,000

bridges with that designation in the
country."



(VIDEO FROM: ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS)

THIS VIDEO SHOWING THE BRIDGE'S FATAL
COLLAPSE IS INVALUABLE TO THE

INVESTIGATION.



(SOT Mark V. Rosenker/NTSB


Chairman-164424): "That s the
equivalent in getting

a cockpit voice recorder or flight data
recorder......(164456)..We're going to

be able to move much faster than had we
been starting from scratch."



INVESTIGATORS WILL LOOK NOT ONLY FOR
WHAT WENT WRONG .. BUT ALSO HOW TO KEEP

THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN ... BRIDGES
CAN BE RE-BUILT. LIVES CANNOT.

The van broadsided the car,

Radlbeck was 17 years old.

Miller was 15.

Both were wearing their

ARE BEING RAISED ABOUT WHETHER

OFFICIALS IGNORED WARNING SIGNS THE
BRIDGE WAS IN TROUBLE.



ENGINEERS SPOTTED STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS
IN THE BRIDGE AS FAR BACK AS 1990, BUT

STATE OFFICIALS THOUGHT REPAIRS AND
YEARLY INSPECTIONS WOULD BE ENOUGH TO

KEEP IT TOGETHER.




(SOT Governor Tom Pawlenty): "The


federal government did an assessment
based

on our inspections that they called
structurally deficient. There are
80,000

bridges with that designation in the
country."



(VIDEO FROM: ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS)

THIS VIDEO SHOWING THE BRIDGE'S FATAL
COLLAPSE IS INVALUABLE TO THE

INVESTIGATION.



(SOT Mark V. Rosenker/NTSB


Chairman-164424): "That s the
equivalent in getting

a cockpit voice recorder or flight data

be able to move much faster than had we
