The following is an announcement from the Westchester County Executive's Office:
Tree removal operations in preparation for the will cause lane closures on the Bronx River Parkway everyday this week.
Motorists are advised that there will be right-lane closures in both directions between Exit 12 (Crane Road) and Exit 11 (Ardsley Road) tonight (Tuesday, July 10) from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Also, the northbound right lane of the Bronx River Parkway between Harney Road (Exit 10) and Crane Road (Exit 12) and the northbound Crane Road Exit 12 ramp will be closed Wednesday July 11 through Friday July 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Motorists should expect traffic delays and use Harney Road (Exit 10) as a detour.
The bridge replacement 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.
