Minneapolis leaders gathered Tuesday to honor victims, survivors and first responders on the 10th anniversary of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse.
A 2 p.m. ceremony was held outside the Minneapolis Emergency Operations Training Facility.
Minneapolis firefighters had a piece of the I-35W bridge wreckage installed in front of the facility as a reminder of their service that day. The training center is at 25 37th Ave. N.E. in Minneapolis.

A private ceremony was also held earlier Tuesday for victims and first responders.
On Tuesday night, the feature lighting on the new I-35W bridge will go dark in remembrance of the tragedy.
Also Tuesday, Minnesota’s U.S. senators, Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, announced they had introduced a Senate resolution in recognition of the bridge collapse anniversary.
The resolution “commemorates the bravery and commitment of the public safety personnel that effectively responded to the collapse; and acknowledges the successful community-wide effort to design, plan, and construct” a replacement.
