Resurfacing work on the Adur Ferry Bridge’s opening span is due to start on Monday.
The Shoreham footbridge will remain open to the public throughout, as only one side of this section will be resurfaced at a time.
A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “A few parking spaces will be taken up by workforce welfare facilities in the nearby Beach Road car park and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
“Please be assured we will do all we can to minimise disruption during the works.”
Subject to factors such as poor weather, the work is expected to be completed by January 21.
