YONKERS, N.Y. – Access to the northbound Bronx River Parkway will be limited on weekdays from the Sprain Brook Parkway in Yonkers to the Westchester County Center in White Plains beginning Monday, Sept. 23 to Friday, Sept. 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Drivers are advised to seek alternate routes. The county is warning drivers of the following closures on the northbound Bronx River Parkway this week:
- 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.
- The northbound parkway will be open to traffic at Crane Road and all points north.
Notably, the southbound parkway will remain open. Closures on the northbound parkway are due to the forming and pouring of concrete for the west abutment as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project.
The southbound parkway will be open. The northbound closures are necessary to continue the forming and pouring of concrete for the west abutment as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway, which began in summer 2012 and will take about three years to complete.
Numerous variable message signs are being used to alert motorists of the upcoming closures, the county said.
