Thorne Moorends Town Council says that the pedestrian swingbridge near the Canal Tavern in Thorne is currently out of order.
The footbridge crosses the Stainforth & Keadby canal between Hatfield Road and South Parade.
A spokesperson for the Town Council said: “The electrics were accidentally damaged by a boat operator yesterday. Parts have been ordered and we hope to have the bridge back in operation as quickly as possible. We regret any inconvenience the issue may cause.
“Pedestrians should use the road bridge as an alternative route until further notice.”
