Green Bay's Leo Frigo bridge on I-43 closed after segment sags

Green Bay's Leo Frigo bridge on I-43 closed after segment sags


By Ashley Luthern of the Journal Sentinel
Updated: 2:07 p.m.

The Leo Frigo Bridge on I-43, which crosses the Fox River in Green Bay, closed early Wednesday after part of the span apparently "settled," creating a large dip in the roadway across all lanes.

The bridge, formerly known as the Tower Drive bridge, will remain closed indefinitely as inspections continue, said Kim Rudat, regional communication manager for the state Department of Transportation's northeast region.

"The bridge is closed. It appears to have settled," Rudat said. "We need to inspect it, determine what happened, determine if any other part of the bridge is at risk and develop a plan to fix it.

I read the article about the bridge. It isn't that old compared to many other bridges. Wonder what the inspections reveals.

I use that bridge at least once a month. Will now take Mason Ave which intersects with I-43 on the far west side of Green Bay. Will have to back track then to catch hwy 57 to make it to door county.
