Looks like a major engineering screw up. 
That will be costly to fix.

Holy speed bump Batman! It looks like it came apart at an expansion joint. Maybe it will be a reasonably quick and inexpensive fix?

The highway closure effectively closes travel by road across Canada. The option now is for vehicles headed west or east to detour through the United States. Westbound traffic from Thunder Bay would have to travel south to the Pigeon River Border crossing and then from Duluth to Sault Ste Marie.

 

Bolts through the pot bearing plate busted. Someone has a mistake to figure out, and they better hurry.

 

Highway 61 in Minnesota and Highway 2 through Wisconsin is about to get a whole lot busier.......

 

Which highway in the U.P. do you take to get to Sault Ste Marie?

Interstate 75 from the south

Michigan 28 then turns into Interstate 75 coming from the west.

Well then, on behalf of my fellow Americans,
Mi carretera, Su carretera...

Hope they get it fixed quick for you guys.
Turn a 10 minute commute into forced retirement if you live-work in the wrong spots
