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

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