Tree Work is Part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project
Motorists are advised that 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 starting Wednesday July 11 and continuing through Friday July 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Motorists should use Harney Road (Exit 10) as a detour. Delays are expected and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
This is in addition to the previously announced right-lane closures in both directions between Exit 12 and Exit 11 today and tomorrow from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
These closures are necessary for tree removal operations as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway. The 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.
