The Bronx River Parkway will again be closed to northbound traffic from the Sprain Brook Parkway in Yonkers to the Westchester County Center in White Plains from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.

The northbound lanes are in need of pavement repairs related to the Crane Road Bridge Replacement project on the BPR. Westchester County advises drivers to take alternate routes. 

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.  

• Northbound parkway will be open to traffic at Crane Road and all points north.

The $39.4 million, four-phase project is estimated to be finished by spring of 2015. The new bridge will feature wider lanes and shoulders, including a northbound deceleration lane to Crane Road. Sidewalks will be added and the southbound Metro-North platform will be completely reconstructed. A portion of the Scarsdale Merchant Parking Lot has been partitioned as a staging area for equipment.
