A busy Bronx River Parkway exit will be closed for several months in Westchester as contracting crews prepare to ramp up a bridge repair project near Tuckahoe.
The Tuckahoe Police Department issued an alert to area residents cautioning that beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 25, the Elm Street northbound exit ramp will be closed and will not reopen until Dec. 24 as work begins to repair the bridge at the end of the exit.
Police said that due to this repair project, there will be heavy traffic on Scarsdale Road in the area of The Olde Stone Mill Restaurant when attempting to come into the village. All motorists will now have to get off at the Scarsdale Road exit from the Bronx River Parkway, funneling the traffic to one area of the village during the morning and evening commutes.
Motorists have been advised by police to “please share and starting to think of alternate routes leaving and coming back home if you normally use the Elm Street exit or on-ramp to avoid the traffic.”
