Access issues could delay pool opening

Albion Family Aquatic Center is on schedule to be complete in mid-June, but access to the site may delay opening until an unspecified date.
City of Albion officials said they expected to award a contract earlier this year to build a separate and adjacent street/sidewalk project to provide access to the facility. However, only one bid was received for the project, and it was rejected in April because it was far above the engineer’s estimated cost.
Since the location of the sidewalk and handicapped parking will be occupied until the pool is completed, it will not be possible to build the sidewalk until after June 13.
