The Margate bridge and causeway will be closed overnight for two weeks due to repair and maintenance on bridge mechanical equipment, according to a news release from the Margate Bridge Co.

The bridge will be closed overnight 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sept. 16-20 and Sept. 23-27, the company said.

The work will include removing and replacing aged mechanical and structural parts, including bearings and gears, the company said.

The work should be completed within the two weeks, weather permitting, the company said.

The roadway will be blocked in each direction and message boards will alert drivers, but there will be no interruption for boat traffic in the channel during the work, the company said.
