FALMOUTH — The two-lane causeway that connects the mainland to state-owned Mackworth Island will be closed to pedestrian traffic as of Monday while repairs are being done to the causeway’s bridge.

Falmouth Town Manager Nathan Poore said vehicular traffic will still be able to use the causeway but travel will be restricted to one lane during the construction period. Poore was not sure how long the repairs will take.

Poore said he believes the state will fund repairs to the bridge. It is not a town project.

The work will have an impact on pedestrians, who live on nearby Andrews Avenue and adjacent neighborhoods, as well as the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf.

There is a popular walking trail that goes around the island, which also serves as home to the school for the deaf.
