The City of Algoma will now wait until the fall to make improvements to the Algoma Harbor. The boat launch will remain open this spring and summer, according to City Administrator Matt Murphy.
Even if the late winter winds were not enough to keep you off the water, you will at the very least have to find a different place to launch your boat. The City of Algoma announced on Monday that its marina's boat launch is closed for the next several weeks. The dredging of the boat launch area is expected to start later this week, keeping the boat launch at the marina closed until the beginning of May. Iron Works Construction out of Baileys Harbor will do the work for the amount of $427,000.
