The Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge has been closed since Sept. 25 after motorists reported a 2-foot dip in the pavement [2] across all lanes of traffic east of the river, according to a report in the Post Crescent [3].

Now, around-the-clock repair efforts keep the Green Bay, Wis., bridge on track for a mid-January reopening.

Brian Roper, regional design and construction chief for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), said the bridge project team is “in good shape” on the repairs underway to the 8,000-foot span across the Fox River, according to the Post Crescent report.

Check out the video to the right to see crews working to repair the structure.
