Council to declare state of emergency: Talks on future without bridge to begin this week

The Minneapolis City Council took a first step toward declaring a state of emergency Thursday morning, a day after the collapse of the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River.

The City Council discussed a disaster resolution that will be voted on in their meeting Friday. Once passed, the resolution will help the city access emergency funding for clean-up and recovery.

Council members said the city had already received $5 million in emergency funds from the National Transportation Safety Board.
