The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is advising motorists that the Hutchinson River Parkway will be closed between Exit 6 (I-95 North/New Haven) in the village of Pelham and Exit 15 (Cross County Parkway/George Washington Bridge) in the City of New Rochelle, weather permitting. The southbound lanes will close Saturday morning, June 12 at 12 a.m. and will reopen Sunday morning, June 13 at 6 a.m.
Motorists should use the following signed detours:
-Motorists accessing the Hutchinson River Parkway southbound will be detoured to the Cross County Parkway
-Motorists traveling east on the Cross County Parkway will be directed to continue east at Exit 10 (New Rochelle Road/Eastchester)
These closures are needed to facilitate demolition of the existing bridge structure and replace a sewer pipe at Exit 12 (East Lincoln Ave/Mount Vernon/Pelham) as part of an ongoing bridge replacement and rehabilitation project in Lower Westchester.
Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
