I guess you mean the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis?

That one opened september 18th, three months ahead of schedule.

Here is the latest folded map  image of Minneapolis, MN by Rand McNally since printed in September 2007 as shown with I-35W update logo on it.

I was told by someone who lives in the area that he had very mixed feelings when he crossed the bridge for the first time.  :-|

When I crossed the bridge for the first time (two days after it opened), it was almost surreal. When I got onto I-35W North from I-94 East it almost seemed like it took a long time to get to the bridge (which is about a mile NE from I-94). The bridge itself was impressive but I also hope it is a reminder of the tragedy and that nobody forgets.
