GREEN BAY -- Governor Scott Walker announced Friday the the Leo Frigo Bridge in Green Bay will reopen on Sunday, January 5th - almost two weeks earlier than the projected January 17th completion.

The bridge has been closed to traffic since September, when a semi driver discovered that the pavement had started to dip.

Extensive repairs were required on five piers of the bridge after engineers determined "unique soil conditions" lead them to corrode.
