Major Portions of Bronx River Parkway to Close for Construction April 26-27

Drilling to take place for piles as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project, county officials say.

Major Portions of Bronx River Parkway to Close for Construction April 26-27

This is an announcement from the Westchester County Executive's Office. 

Motorists are advised that major portions of the Bronx River Parkway in both directions will be closed from the Sprain Brook Parkway in Yonkers to the Westchester County Center (Exit 22) in White Plains from Friday night, April 26 at 10 p.m. to Saturday night, April 27 at 8 p.m.

These closures are necessary to begin drilling of piles for the new west bridge abutment of the new bridge as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway.

Northbound Parkway closures:

  • All northbound Bronx River Parkway traffic in Yonkers (six lane section of the parkway) will be detoured onto the Sprain Brook Parkway, then 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.  

Southbound Parkway closures:

  •  All southbound Bronx River Parkway traffic will be detoured at the Westchester County Center (Exit 22) in White Plains onto Central Park Avenue south to the Sprain Brook Parkway.
  • Entrances to southbound Bronx River Parkway at Main Street and Fenimore Road will be closed.
  • Local traffic will have access to the southbound Bronx River Parkway at Ardsley Road and points south.

Delays are expected and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.  Numerous variable message signs are being used to alert motorists.

The project began last summer and will take three years to complete.
