Leo Frigo Bridge OPEN in Brown County
‚ÄčBridge engineers inspect reports of pavement issue
(Green Bay) The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Northeast Region announces the Leo Frigo Bridge is now open for travel following investigation of a reported pavement issue in the southbound lanes of I-43 near the east portion of the bridge arch. Local law enforcement closed the bridge at approximately 4:37 p.m. out of an abundance of caution after receiving the pavement complaint through the Brown County 911 Dispatch Center.
A preliminary review of the pavement by a WisDOT bridge engineer shortly after the complaint showed no issue with the pavement. WisDOT dispatched a second bridge engineer to assist in a more extensive review of the location and the structure. Both investigations found no safety issues on the pavement or the structure itself. The bridge is safe for travel.
WisDOT investigates and responds accordingly to all reports of pavements concerns or roadway hazards that may affect the traveling public.

Green Bay Police have shutdown both north and southbound lanes of the I43 Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge after receiving a citizen complaint of a suspicious bump at the crest of the bridge in the southbound lane.  Officers were dispatched and confirmed the complaint.  Brown Co.
