Continuing repairs to the Bridge Street bridge will force the span to be closed for parts of two days this week.

The swing bridge in the Saugatuck area will be closed to vehicular and marine traffic from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Wednesday and Thursday, according to the Selectmen's Office. However, pedestrians and bicycles will be allowed to use the bridge.

The contractor, Cianbro Construction Co., said that bridge components that had been sent out for refurbishing will be reinstalled.

The project will force other periods of closure over the next several weeks, officials said, but they should be shorter.

Signs for detour routes will be posted.
