Crane Road Bridge Replacement
LKB is performing Construction Inspection on the $39.4 million project to replace the deteriorated Crane Road Bridge on the Bronx River Parkway along the border of Scarsdale and Greenburgh. The project involves replacing the bridge over the Bronx River and the Metro-North Railroad tracks. The bridge’s architectural details include circular concrete piers, covered with rustic stone that resemble a clutch of “mushrooms.” Its bridge deck curves around Scarsdale Lake, over the Bronx River and the Metro-North Railroad. The replacement bridge will resemble the original design.
The current bridge, built in 1924, will continue to be operational during most of the project while a new bridge is constructed alongside it. To improve traffic operations and safety, the new bridge will have wider lanes and shoulders and will include a northbound deceleration lane to Crane Road. There will also be sidewalks to enhance pedestrian access to the Bronx River Parkway reservation, and the southbound Metro-North platform will be reconstructed. The estimated completion date is spring 2015.
