The Placentia lift bridge will be closed to all marine traffic for roughly three weeks starting Monday while maintenance work is completed on the structure.

The closure will ensure the safety of workers, pedestrians and motorists, and allow the work to be done as quickly as possible, a news release Friday from the Department of Transportation and Works stated.

Vehicle traffic will still be able to use the bridge.

The department says updates will be given as the work progresses
