The temporary closure of the pedestrian bridge in Waterfront Park has been postponed, according to city of Bainbridge officials.

The city had earlier said the pedestrian bridge on Bainbridge’s Waterfront Trail would be closed starting Monday, Jan. 7 for repairs.

City spokeswoman Kristen Drew said Friday that the closure has been postponed until Tuesday, Jan. 15 because the contractor for the pedestrian bridge project is waiting for construction materials.

During the closure the bridge, which is east of Waterfront Park, will have its decking and guardrails replaced. The project also includes the installation of new lights on the bridge and along the trail, between the bridge and Harborview Drive.
