GREEN BAY - A freighter hit a train bridge over the Fox River in Green Bay, causing significant damage, and putting the railroad line out of service.
That had some businesses along the train route concerned.
Workers repaired a section of a Canadian National bridge after a freighter hit it Tuesday.
According to the Port of Green Bay, the Master Vessel Manitowoc was in the area at the time.
It made the trip from Sandusky, Ohio and was delivering coal to Georgia Pacific.
A picture of the damage shows the tracks knocked out of alignment. Railroad officials say no one was injured.
"Canadian National engineering is onsite making repairs to the bridge so operations will be resumed as quickly as possible," said Emily Hamer, a spokesperson for the Canadian National Railroad.
Canadian National officials told FOX 11 repairs to the rail line, which provides daily service to the area, were completed by Wednesday afternoon.
Before learning the work would be wrapped up so soon, we spoke with some companies who rely on the trains to deliver product.
"Four times a week," said Andy Dufeck.
That's how often a train stops and drops wood off at Dufeck Manufacturing in Denmark.
Dufeck said the incident could potentially be a big headache, depending on how long it would take to fix the train bridge.
"We could bring it in by truck, a lot of our wood comes from Canada. But if I have to bring it in by truck, it's going to greatly increase my cost because the rail is a much cheaper option," Dufeck said.
However, now to his relief, operations have resumed. That means Dufeck Manufacturing, and other area companies, can get needed materials and products.
Canadian National officials said a damage estimate remains under review.
The Coast Guard says it is conducting a federal investigation into the matter, but could not provide details.
The company which owns the M-V Manitowoc, Grand River Navigation in Ohio, did not return our calls for comment.
Coast Guard officials say the ship sustained some cosmetic damage from the incident.
