Green Bay Bridge ‘Sagging,’ Snarls Traffic, Has Leo Frigo Heard It’s Not The 90’s Anymore?

Green Bay Bridge 'Sagging,' Snarls Traffic, Has Leo Frigo Heard It's Not The 90's Anymore?

Green Bay bridge has a pair of saggy pants that’s snarling up traffic in the Wisconsin area.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Leo Frigo bridge closed for repairs recently.

Like a pair of saggy jeans that used to be favored by some rappers, we can see the Green Bay Bridge sagging due to one of the piers sinking two feet down into the ground, which is almost as ugly. The Green Bay bridge will be closed indefinitely until by the Wisconsin transportation authority.

The Green Bay bridge was built in 1981 and named the Leo Frigo bridge after the head of Frigo Cheese corporation, who retired in 1983 and died in 2001. Leo Frigo founded a Green Bay food pantry and worked with many ex-convicts.

Fortunately, the Green Bay bridge sagging probably won’t mean it will collapse, but it’s certainly going to disrupt traffic. There’s said to be a lot of construction going around town and the Green Bay bridge used to carry 40,000 cars a day.

The last time the Green Bay bridge was inspected was back in August of 2012 when it was declared to be structurally sound and was even renovated. The Leo Frigo bridge was actually part of an improvement plan to Interstate 43, which cost over $17 million.

Besides jokes about the Green Bay bridge sagging, some residents are already calling it the “cheese dip” since it’s not merely a bump in the road, it’s an actual dip. The whole four-lane section measures about 150 to 200 yards across.
