Bay City officials say their latest guidance from the Michigan Department of Transportation is that Veterans Memorial Bridge will reopen June 19th following the latest series of repairs.

City Manager Dana Muscott says that’s very good news given all the upcoming summer festivals and concerts.

Muscott added Wednesday, June 5 at 2:00 p.m. is also the scheduled opening for bids from companies interested in repairing the city owned Liberty and Independence Bridges.
