Forecast rain has delayed the resurfacing of the Dublin St Bridge by a week.

The bridge will now be closed on February 17 from 6am to 5pm for the work to be completed with February 18 set as a backup day.

The closure was scheduled for tomorrow but has been postponed because of forecast for rain the weekend. Fine weather is required for the resurfacing work.

Although the bridge will be closed to motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians will be able to access the bridge at all times.
