Mount Vernon Bridges Being Replaced

Post by Jeff Smith » Thu May 10, 2018 10:31 am

Starting with 14th Ave.
Contractors hired by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority began preparing the century-old 14th Avenue Bridge for dismantling. The bridge will be closed for 10 months, the expected period to complete the project.

The work is the first of five bridge replacements in Mount Vernon over the Metro-North Railroad's tracks. The four other bridges targeted for replacement are at 10th, Sixth, Third and Fulton avenues.

The MTA and Mount Vernon jointly own the bridges. Two of those bridges at 10th and Third avenues have been closed for more than 10 years.
Next stop, Willoughby
