The Second Street bridge project is trying to avoid being a day late and a span short. The contractor is actively seeking out a second work crew to remedy the situation and that means the pace of the project is about to pick up. Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy says boaters need to circle September 15th on their calendar.
If workers can make up time the repairs are set to be complete in November. All businesses in the area are open during construction. There will be no access to the bridge during all phases of the work. Highway 42 is currently being used as a detour to traffic passing through the city.
