Sconset Footbridge to Temporarily Close for Maintenance and Repair

Sconset Bridge

The Town of Nantucket announces that the Sconset footbridge will be temporarily closed for maintenance and repair from March 22 – April 2nd. The bridge will be closed to pedestrian traffic during this time.

The work being done includes replacing rotted wood along the lower railings and repairing wood supports under the footbridge deck. In the fall, additional work is needed to repair the wood columns and concrete footings, along with painting. 

The Town of Nantucket is committed to ensuring that all residents and visitors can enjoy safe access to our beautiful island. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your patience during this time. The bridge is expected to reopen in time for Daffodil Festival!
