Algoma South Pier repairs and long-term solution coming

Algoma's South Pier will be closed to public access for a short time this spring. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will repair erosion damage from high water levels on Lake Michigan.  Algoma City officials have been seeking federal funding for repairs since the pier became unsafe for public use last year.  Public Works Director Matt Murphy says the Corps could do several days of repair work as early as April.  Murphy says that will include rock work on the south wall and 85-feet of the pier resurfacing that was lost to erosion.  Murphy also says funding for a long-term solution is now in place.



Murphy says the Corps of Engineers will also be doing work in Kewaunee before coming to Algoma for the South Pier repairs.
