Delays to repairs of Dedham Mill Bridge will mean more delays on top of its seven-week closure, highways officials have said.
Equipment on the B1029 Dedham Road bridge is being replaced as part of work by Suffolk Highways, with resurfacing and repainting also being carried out.
A 24/7 road closure has been in place since Monday, October 12 and was due to be finished by Sunday, November 29.
However, a Suffolk Highways spokesman said: “Due to unforeseen engineering difficulties, it will be necessary for the road closure to remain in place up to Friday, December 4.”
Yet the bridge “will be reopening overnight between 5pm and 8am between Monday, November 30 and Friday, December 4”, the spokesman added.

The road will be closed to cars, walkers and cyclists from the junction of Church Road, Stratford, to Dedham Mill Bridge.
