BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - The Liberty Bridge in Bay City is closing for part of the day for an emergency repair on one of the moveable bridge’s four center locks.

Bill Bohlen, the city’s public works director, tells The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/2jy8EHj ) a crane will be used for Wednesday’s repairs, which are expected to wrap up by midafternoon.

Bohlen says the lock replacement was planned for the bridge over the Saginaw River, but not until next year. He says the emergency job is costing the city $30,000.

Bay City’s other bridges - including the Lafayette, Veterans Memorial and Independence bridges - are to remain open to traffic. A number of bridge repair projects are planned in Bay City, including a $42.5 million project in 2020 to reconstruct the Lafayette Bridge.
