Algoma bridge opening December 6 After a few delays, the new Second Street Bridge in Algoma will be open to traffic next weekend. The construction that began this past July was slowed due to a combination of worker scheduling issues and geological complications. Matt Murphy, the public works director, says the bridge project was a major undertaking with all the challenges faced. He updates the recent bridgework being done before the opening next Friday.
Murphy says the higher Second Street bridge will not have the metal girders like the old bridge and will be nearly an identical twin to the Fourth Street Bridge in Algoma.
