Lansing Bridge Closed By Barge

The only bridge over the Mississippi between La Crosse and Prairie du Chien has been shut down today...after a barge ran into it.

The Blackhawk bridge at Lansing has been closed because of the accident. Traffic to and from the bridge on Wisconsin Highway 82 may be closed for the next few hours, but the Crawford County Sheriff's Office says north-south traffic on the Wisconsin side is still moving. People who normally use the bridge at Lansing will have to travel 30 miles to the north or south to get across the river until the bridge reopens.
