Motorists are advised that there will be night time right lane closures in both directions of the Bronx River Parkway between Crane Road (Exit 12) and Ardsley Road (Exit 11) in Scarsdale and Greenburgh on Monday July 9 and Tuesday July 10 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
During this time, it is expected that there will be periodic 5-minute closures of the parkway in one or both directions in this vicinity to accommodate tree work. Delays are expected and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
These closures are necessary for tree removal operations as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway. The project began last month and will take three years to complete.
The current bridge, built in 1924, will continue to be operational during most of the project while a new bridge is constructed alongside it. To improve traffic operations and safety, the new bridge will have wider lanes and shoulders and will include a northbound deceleration lane to Crane Road. There will also be sidewalks to enhance pedestrian access to the Bronx River Parkway reservation, and the southbound Metro-North platform will be reconstructed.
The $39.4 million project is being funded by a combination of federal, state and county money and will create approximately 400 construction jobs.
