Some quick calls to 911 in Green Bay may have avoided a huge tragedy and Bridge collapse for commuters.

For those of us in Minnesota and the Twin Cities in particular, we all remember the Hennepin Bridge collapse in Minneapolis, bringing an awareness to the average commuter, about the safety of bridges in the United States.

Some commuters in Green Bay were to quick to get on the phone to alert authorities of a 400 foot dip that developed on the 33 year old  Leo Frigo Bridge above the Fox River.  The bridge which carries about 40,000 passengers daily will be closed indefinitely, even though authorities say it is not in danger of collapsing.

Governor Scott Walker said the bridge will be repaired no matter what the cost, but reiterated public safety is a top priority right now.
