Last month, the New York State Department of Transportation announced plans for a closure of the parkway on the final weekend of September as part of an ongoing bridge replacement near the Pelham and Mount Vernon border.
But the work was postponed and now, the NYSDOT has rescheduled the closure.
Motorists have been advised that beginning at 11 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19, the Hutchinson River Parkway will be closed between exit 6 (I-95) and exit 15 (Cross County Parkway). The closure is scheduled to conclude at 5 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 22, in advance of the morning commute.
Over the weekend, northbound traffic on the parkway will be detoured at the I-95 interchange. Southbound traffic will be diverted to the Cross County Parkway and the Bronx River Parkway. All ramps to the Hutchinson River Parkway south of the East 3rd Street overpass will be accessible for southbound traffic.
