Major bridge closes indefinitely

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Drivers in Green Bay have a major traffic headache to deal with.

The bridge that carries Interstate 43 over the Fox River is closed indefinitely after a concrete support settled more than two feet.

The Leo Frigo Bridge was closed when a long, deep dip was discovered early Wednesday morning.

Transportation officials say the bridge is not in danger of collapsing, but it could be closed for as long as a year.

The Green Bay Press Gazette reports about 40,000 vehicles use the bridge every day.
