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:

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 traffic should use Ardsley Road for entrance to the southbound Bronx River Parkway.
Unavoidable Overnight Demolition Activities for the CraneRoad Bridge over the MTA Metro-North Harlem Line Railroad Starting November 17
Demolition of the portion of the Crane Road Bridge over the Metro-North Railroad will resume on Monday November 17 and last approximately 3to 4 weeks, with a short hiatus around the Thanksgiving Holiday. All demolition that can be completed safely during daytime hours will be accomplished during the day but, based on Metro-North Railroad safety requirements and restrictions, significant amounts of the demolition work must be done at night when no trains are running (typically between the hours of2:00 AM to 5:00 AM). Some weekend night work is also expected to occur.
It is expected that the nighttime noise levels will decrease as the work progresses with the loudest activities occurring during the 1st two or three nights. After that the concrete stringers and concrete bridge deck will be demolished. This will be followed by removal of the steel floor beams and steel girders with an extremely large crane. Lastly, the middle abutment,just west of the railroad tracks, will be removed.
