Fulton Avenue Drawbridge in Pelham Manor, Mount Vernon Reopens

Fulton Avenue Drawbridge in Pelham Manor, Mount Vernon Reopens
The following announcement is from the Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation:

Effective immediately, the Fulton Avenue Drawbridge between Secor Lane and Edison Avenue in Mount Vernon and Pelham Manor is now open to vehicular traffic. 

The recent closure to repair electrical malfunctions on the drawbridge has been completed.  The bridge had been previously closed from January-March to correct structural steel deficiencies detected by inspectors. A large scale rehabilitation project is currently being designed to eliminate the need for the interim repairs of the last several years.

The Fulton Avenue Bridge connects Mount Vernon to Rt. 1 in addition to the area’s major retail corridor.

For additional information, contact Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation at 995-2555.
