A sigh of relief for Bay City drivers as a major bridge reopens following repairs.

Liberty Bridge closed Thursday, June 7 and a traffic detour was put in place while maintenance and repairs were made on the bridge. The closure was initially slated for June 4 but was pushed back.

The closure reopened Wednesday, June 27.

City crews repaired the concrete deck pavement, performed maintenance on the tail locks, and inspected and performed routine maintenance on the bridge and mechanical systems.
