Algoma residents will have to find alternative routes around the 2nd Street Bridge. The Wisconsin Department of Transporation is set to begin construction work on a new bridge next month and completion is scheduled for October. A public meeting will be held to show people the detours around the construction zone. Mayor Wayne Schmidt says that will help people during their daily commutes and during the Shanty Days celebration.
While the 2nd Street bridge reconstruction is underway, Algoma will also be extending utility lines to the new Bell Harbor condominiums development. The public meeting on these projects is scheduled for May 30th at 6:00 PM in Algoma City Hall on Fremont Street.
