Sagging 400-ft. Section of Green Bay Bridge Forces Closure

The bridge, which carries 40,000 vehicles daily, will be closed indefinitely.

A 400-foot section of the Leo Frigo Bridge - named after a late Wisconsin cheese scion - suddenly sagged Wednesday, forcing police to close off the span that carries Interstate 43 over the Fox River some 120 feet below.

It appears that one of the piers holding up the bridge sank about 2 feet into the ground. The bridge, which carries 40,000 cars a day, will be closed indefinitely, state officials said.
