he efforts by authorities to get to the cause of a three-foot sag in the Leo Frigo Memorial Bridge in Green Bay will not be hampered by the Federal Government shutdown.  Funding for the investigation is fueled by a highway trust fund that is not bound to the current situation in Washington D.C.  Federal officials are on the scene and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is seeking emrgency funding from the Federal Highway Administration.

Experts are scrambling to determine the cause of a three-foot sag in the bridge that runs across all of the lanes of traffic.  It appears that a support column sunk deeper into the ground, bringing the bridge deck with it.

The bridge – which is a main artery route for I-43 in Green Bat – remains closed indefinitely.
