The Interstate 35W bridge collapse has sparked lots of action on bridge repairs -- outside Minnesota. Here is what other states have done since Aug. 1:

Missouri: Governor ordered legislators to include bridge repair in their recent special session. They approved plans to fix more than 800 of the state's worst bridges within five years.

Wisconsin: Will install sensors to measure stress on 14 bridges that are more than 50 years old.

Tennessee: Several bridges, including the one that links Memphis to West Memphis, Ark., are temporarily closed for repairs.
