Aero-Metric Recognized for Response to the I-35W Bridge Collapse
 
On January 28, 2008, Aero-Metric, Inc., received special recognition from the Minnesota Department of Transportation for their response to the I-35W bridge collapse.  In addition to an “Above & Beyond” award for Excellence in Public Service, Aero-Metric also received a Certificate of Appreciation and a personal letter from the Minnesota Lt. Governor and Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Transportation, Carol Molnau. 
 
Marvin Miller, Aero-Metric’s Vice President and Regional Manager of the Midwest Region responded by saying, “We were pleasantly surprised by MNDOT’s recognition of our company for the geospatial services we provided during the hours and days following this tragic event.  Our success was dependent upon a coordinated team effort which included MNDOT personnel.  We were sincerely pleased to have been able to be of assistance to the teams of first responders, MNDOT and the citizens of Minnesota”. 
 
At 6:05pm, on August 1st, 2007 the I-35W Bridge across the Mississippi River near downtown Minneapolis collapsed without warning.  The tragedy left many dead and injured as scores of vehicles and their occupants were trapped in bridge debris or plunged into the river.  In rapid response to this event, Aero-Metric provided aerial photography, LiDAR, and related geospatial data services.  Aero-Metric began its work within 16 hours of the collapse and continued to provide MnDOT and others with timely geospatial data for a period of 10 weeks.
