Construction for the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project on the Bronx River Parkway began June 4, 2012 and will continue for approximately 34 months with a project completion date of March 2015. The Crane Road Bridge is located immediately south of Exit 12 (Crane Road) on the Bronx River Parkway. The project will be completed in four separate stages of 10 months (Stage 1), 6 months (Stage 2), 6 months (Stage 3) and 12 months (Stage 4) in duration. Throughout all stages, limited Parkway closures from Harney Road to Crane Road will occur weekdays from 10 AM to 2 PM. Detours will be posted accordingly. Limited night and weekend Parkway closures in one or both directions will also occur in all stages. In addition during Stages 2, 3 and 4 the northbound Crane Road Bridge exit will be closed to traffic to facilitate the construction activity. It is also anticipated that the southbound Crane Road exit of the Bronx River Parkway will be closed to traffic during Stages 3 and 4. The northbound entrance to the Parkway for Crane Road will remain open throughout the project. The contractor will install the appropriate signs along the Parkway relative to traffic changes. Additionally, Westchester County will notify the public of all project activities through press releases on their website. More information about the project and traffic detours can be found at the Westchester County website:
or by contacting the Westchester County Department of Public Works at (914) 995-2555.
Beginning on Monday, July 23, 2012 - April 3, 2015,
Pipeline Road will be close to motorist between Edgemont Place and the Bronx River Parkway. Pipeline Road, between the Hartsdale Train Station and Edgemont Place, will remain open
to two way traffic. Only the southbound entrance ramp to the Bronx River Parkway, south of Edgemont Place will be closed. Motorists exiting the Hartsdale Station, destined for the southbound Bronx River Parkway, should use the southbound Fenimore Road Entrance Ramp. Local taffic should use Ardsley Road for entrance to the southbound Bronx River Parkway.
Exit Ramp to Crane Road (Exit 12) Closure
Due to recent inclement weather, hindering the contractor’s ability to complete certain construction tasks in accordance with the project schedule, we must postpone the reopening of the SB Exit Ramp from the Bronx River Parkway to Crane Road. We expect the ramp to be reopened in approximately two more weeks, on or before August 9, 2014.
SB BRP Exit Ramp to Crane Road (Exit 12) Closure Extended to August 9
· Exit 12, from the SB BRP to Crane Road (closed on April 26) will remain closed for two additional weeks, until August 9, 2014.
· A detour has been posted utilizing the SB BRP to Exit 10 (Harney Road, to Scarsdale Avenue).
Route 22 is suggested as an alternate to the detour route.
