ALBION – The Village of Albion has been informed by the state Department of Transportation that the scheduled closing of the Main Street life bridge will not occur on Oct. 17.

The new date will be publicized once it is known. The DOT is working hard to make sure that when the bridge is closed, work will be done on the bridge and not just sitting idle.
