Fulton Avenue Drawbridge Open to Vehicles, Pedestrians

Bridge was closed for several months because of structural problems.

The Fulton Avenue Drawbridge between Secor Lane and Edison Avenue in Mount Vernon and Pelham Manor is open to vehicles and pedestrians again as of today.

The bridge has been closed since September due to structural deficiencies detected by work crews. The bridge was kept up and traffic detoured. 

Coast Guard regulations require that the waterway be kept accessible for maritime traffic at all times. 

This bridge has failed numerous times in the past and on occasion has been closed for as long as six months. Most recently, the bridge was closed for a month during the summer.

The Fulton Avenue Bridge connects Mount Vernon to Route 1 in addition to the area’s major retail corridor.

That bridge has been a disaster for over 25 years...WHEN will they finally fix it and fix it for good?
