There have been some changes with the upcoming closure for the 2nd Ave. Bridge in Alpena. Instead of closing on Saturday April 22nd the bridge will now be closed beginning Monday April 24th.
The shut down will suspend all traffic. As a result all commuters are asked to plan ahead. Detour routes will be in place to reroute the flow of traffic.
All local businesses will remain open and can be accessed with the detour route. The bridge closure will start on Monday and will end on Sunday May 7th.
All traffic will be able to use the bridge starting May 8th until Sunday May 21st. The 2nd phase of the maintenance work will begin on Monday May 22nd and will be closed once again to all traffic, until Friday May 26th.
The bridge will be open for Memorial Day weekend and then close once again on Tuesday May 30th until Friday June 2nd. The bridge will re–open Saturday June 3rd.
Please be advised that inclement weather or the construction could delay the project.
