GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Westchester County Legislator MaryJane Shimsky is providing a schedule of the Crane Road Bridge work near the Greenburgh-Scarsdale border.
Dear Neighbors: Since I communicated with you last week, we’ve received additional information on the nighttime demolition schedule for the Crane Road Bridge, which we have reproduced below. I have been told by the chief of staff to the County Executive that there is still late-night work, including jackhammering and hoe ramming, to be completed. Although approximately two-thirds of the new Crane Road Bridge has been completed, in order to complete the project and restore the Bronx River Parkway to two lanes in each direction, the existing bridge over the railroad must be removed so the remainder of the new bridge can be constructed in its place. The demolition work must be completed in 2014 to ensure project completion in 2015. Please note that 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 during an overnight shift, when train frequency is lower (typically between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.). Some of the most critical work can only be accomplished when no trains are running (typically between the hours of 2 and 5 a.m.
