BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Bronx River Parkway Northbound is scheduled for construction starting Monday, Oct. 14 from Yonkers to White Plains.
The Westchester County Department of Public Works is advising residents to avoid the area of the northbound Bronx River Parkway from the Sprain Brook Parkway in Yonkers to the Westchester County Center in White Plains, according to a press release from the department. Construction is set from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14 through Friday, Oct. 18. The work is part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project, according to the release.
Public Works is also reminding residents, according to the press release, of the following announcements:
- All northbound Bronx River Parkway traffic in Yonkers (six lane section of the parkway) will not have access to the four lane northbound Bronx River Parkway and will be detoured onto the Sprain Brook Parkway, to Central Park Avenue (NY 100) to White Plains.
- Local traffic will have access to the northbound Bronx River Parkway at the following locations (between the Sprain Brook Parkway and Harney Road): Paxton Avenue, Elm Street, Scarsdale Road, Thompson Street and Leewood Drive.
- Local northbound parkway traffic will be detoured at Harney Road to Scarsdale Avenue and East Parkway and re-entering the northbound parkway at Crane Road.
- Northbound parkway will be open to traffic at Crane Road and all points north.
- Crews anticipate that the northbound parkway will be open midday on Thursday, Oct. 17. The southbound parkway will be open. The northbound closures are necessary to continue forming and pouring concrete for the west abutment as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway.
Residents traveling in the area are advised to seek alternate routes, according to the release. The project began in the summer of 2012 and will take three years to complete.
Those needing additional information are asked to contact the Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation at 995-2555. Full details of the project are also available on the county's website .
