If you have spent some time in Algoma then you probably know that the south breakwater has been a staple in the community for years, and is used for a lot of different activities. That breakwater is in need of repair, and Algoma is set to receive roughly $19 million to repair the Harbor’s south breakwater, with the project being led by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers. Algoma Mayor Wayne Schmidt said the money has been discussed for some time, but it was a surprise when it became official that Algoma would be receiving the funds for the project. The investment is part of a federal infrastructure law that was passed in November of 2021. U.S Senator Tammy Baldwin who was part of the efforts to secure the funding for the project explains why this is a crucial repair for Algoma
It is currently unknown when construction will start but the money is expected to be issued over the next five to ten years.
