WHEN: Wednesday, July 29th, 2015 at 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: North Main Street Bridge (corner of Albion and Main, northeast corner of bridge)

WHY: The construction project, led by the Bureau of Engineering, took three years and included the concrete jacketing of the arch ribs, replacement of bridge deck and sidewalks, strengthening the spandrel walls, and replication of the original bridge railing and lampposts.
