Bush Visits Bridge
The president took a ten minute aerial tour, then got a close-up look at the destruction that was once the 35-W Bridge. He also stopped to talk to workers, rescuers and survivors, leaving them with the sense that he understands the importance of returning to normalcy.
"Because our message to the Twin cities is, we want to get this bridge built as soon as possible. We understand that this is a main artery, a life here, that people count on this bridge and this highway system to get to work," President Bush said to the people of Minneapolis.
