  Online route maps and reality
By Yokota Fritz 
I tried a few of the online maps to route me from south of the Mississippi River to north of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis.

I tested the mapping services from Google, Yahoo, Ask, and Mapquest. Yahoo and Mapquest have updated their map information to take the damaged I-35W bridge into account. Google and Ask.com both try to route me over the Mississippi via the now missing bridge. Click on the map to see all of the screen caps from the various online maps.

Yahoo Maps - Updated! SB


Always verify the accuracy of computer generated routes with reality checks!
