Moving On 2 Years After Minn. Bridge Collapse

ROSEMOUNT, Minn. -- Minnesota has largely moved on in the two years since a Minneapolis freeway bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River, killing 13 people.

Only a limited observance is planned for today's anniversary.

Flags will fly at half-staff and a moment of silence will be held at 6:05 p.m., the time of the accident.

Some of the survivors of the victims have struggled to move on completely.

Some who lost spouses are planning to remarry.

Justina Hausmann says she always thinks about her father, who died.

Her mother says it doesn't get any easier.

While Minnesota has settled with the bridge victims, other lawsuits are still pending, included several by victims against an engineering firm that studied the bridge.

The state has also sued URS Corp., saying the company should have found the crucial flaw that led to the collapse.
