Motorists are advised that the entrance ramp from Pipeline Road to the southbound Bronx River Parkway between Edgemont Place and the in the town of Greenburgh will be closed starting Monday July 23 and continuing until April 2015.
The section of Pipeline Road between the Hartsdale Railroad station and Edgemont Place will remain open to traffic in both directions. Motorists exiting the Hartsdale Railroad station headed for the southbound Bronx River Parkway should use the southbound Fenimore Road entrance ramp. Local traffic should use Ardsley Road to enter the southbound Bronx River Parkway.
These closures are necessary for work to progress as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway. Appropriate signage will alert motorists. 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.
