There will be a series of closures in the next week as we transition traffic from the Old Crane Road Bridge to the New Crane Road Bridge. Weekday Midday closures on the Northbound Bronx River Parkway will take place from Monday September 29 to Monday October 6, between the hours of 9:30 AM and 3:30 PM, to allow drainage structure installation, temporary concrete median barrier placement and installation of temporary pavement markings. On one afternoon, likely Tuesday September 30, northbound traffic will be shifted onto the new bridge with southbound traffic remaining on the old bridge. The current one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained.
Due to weather forecast for Saturday October 4, the full closure of the Bronx River Parkway has been rescheduled as follows
Monday Night October 6, at 10 PM, both directions of the Bronx River Parkway will be closed until Tuesday October 7, 5:30 AM to facilitate installation of temporary concrete median barrier on the new bridge and install temporary pavement markings and to accommodate traffic shifts. Upon reopening of the Parkway, on Tuesday October 7 at 5:30 AM, both directions of traffic will be driving on the new bridge, with one lane in each direction being maintained until project completion next summer.
Demolition activities on the Old Bridge will occur starting on Monday October 6, 2014. The Mushroom Structure over the Bronx River will be demolished during daytime hours while the structure over the MTA Metro-North Railroad must be demolished at night due to railroad requirements. These activities will continue for several weeks. Noise will be lessened to the maximum extent possible but cannot be avoided.
