FALMOUTH — The causeway to Mackworth Island will be closed for repairs on weekends throughout March, according to the state Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.

The Maine Department of Transportation found the wooden bridge on the causeway was in need of repairs last year, and March weekends were chosen for the closings to minimize the overall impact to those visiting the island. The project is expected to be completed by April.

The bridge will be completely closed on March 7 and 8, 14 and 15, 21 and 22, and 28 and 29. On weekdays there will be times when the causeway is reduced to one-way, alternating traffic, but there won’t be full closures during the week.
