If you've been frustrated by the repeat closure of the Fulton Ave Bridge over the last several weeks, relief may be on the way. Westchester County Department of Public Works contractors are making progress and hope to be finished with their work just in time for the holiday shopping season in Pelham Manor.
"We're proceeding with work and anticipate we'll be able to re-open in about 2 weeks," said County Engineer Pat Donnelly.
Donnelly said the bridge rehab included replacement of 8 steel stringers. Additional work to replace the bridge's traffic agent barriers will continue while the bridge is open and may require occasional lane closures to complete, said Donnelly.
The hope is that the bridge will be completely open to traffic by the "end of the first full in November." Donnelly said there is a concern about upcoming inclement weather predicted for early next week, but said work is on schedule and moving forward.
