Waterway closure in Algoma delayed another week

Another delay of the planned waterway closure for under the Second Street Bridge in Algoma will not mean the construction project will not be done on schedule.   Nautical traffic was to be closed for the season as of this Sunday but Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy says that plan was postponed another week.  The waterway will now remain open until September 29.  Murphy explains the reasoning behind the decision.



The scheduled closure will be reevaluated again next Thursday. The complete Second Street Bridge project which began back in early July is still expected to be completed by the middle of November, according to Murphy.
