Like the MacArthur Maze Quilt, this map is a prime example of mapping current events. On August 1st the bridge in this map unexpected collapsed killing and injuring scores of people. Having family living in the Twin City area, I took notice of this bridge’s collapse and decided to make a map.
Last year in October I was in the area for my Grandma’s funeral and remember seeing the bridge off in the distance. I even remember being driven across the bridge when I was a lot younger. So unlike most of the maps I’ve made which feature locations I have yet to visit, this one really hits home for me.
