Repairs to the sagging Leo Frigo Bridge in Green Bay wound up costing around $15-million.
That’s according to a Department of Transportation report released yesterday outlining the cause of the September 2013 sag, repairs that were made and steps that will be taken to ensure the bridge does not dip again.
A support pier dropped two feet causing the bridge to sag. The bridge was closed for about two and a half months. New probes to monitor rust and corrosion have been installed and the pilings will be tested every two years.
The original cost estimate had been up to $20-million.
