The Wisconsin Department of Transportation
(WisDOT) Northeast Region in Green Bay is reminding motorists

heavier than usual traffic due to the closure of the Leo Frigo

for orange barrels, narrow lanes, soft shoulders and increased
volume from the Leo Frigo bridge closure to affect gameday
WisDOT strongly recommends motorists allow
themselves additional time to reach their destinations.
