SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Major portions of the Bronx River Parkway north and southbound will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday until 8 p.m. Saturday, Westchester County announced.

The BPR will be closed from the Sprain Brook Parkway in Yonkers to the Westchester County Center, exit 22, in White Plains during that time as part of the Crane Road Bridge Replacement Project.

Northbound Parkway closures will be:

  • All northbound BPR 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 BPR 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.

Southbound Parkway closures:

  • All southbound BPR traffic will be detoured at the Westchester County Center (Exit 22) in White Plains onto Central Park Avenue south to the Sprain Brook Parkway.
  • Entrances to southbound BPR at Main Street and Fenimore Road will be closed.
  • Local traffic will have access to the southbound BPR at Ardsley Road and points south.
  • Delays are expected and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.  Numerous variable message signs are being used to alert motorists.

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.
