DOT establishes official detour for closed Leo Frigo Bridge
GREEN BAY - The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has announced it is changing the official detour route that guides drivers away from the Leo Frigo Bridge.
Signs will be placed by the end of the week directing traffic to Highways 41 and 172.
Once complete, all signs directing interstate traffic to Webster Avenue and Atkinson Drive through downtown Green Bay will be removed. A DOT spokesman says the move is being made to redirect a majority of traffic from city streets.
Forty-thousand vehicles a day used the Leo Frigo Bridge before it was closed nearly two weeks ago.
