990 days of bridge construction at the Ashford Ave bridge begins on January 4th
Release Date: January 03, 2016

FINALLY--WORK ON THE ASHFORD AVE BRIDGE IS GOING TO START! The Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation has advised that they have established January 4, 2016 as the start date of the rehabilitation of the Ashford Avenue Bridge.

The contract calls for a duration of 990 days establishing September 20, 2018 as the completion date of the project.

While the start date for the project is January 4th, the County does not anticipate any significant traffic impacts in the immediate future.  Initially, construction equipment will be staged and utilities will be moved.

The Ashford Avenue Bridge connects the villages of  Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry. It traverses the Saw Mill River, Saw Mill River Parkway, South County Trailway and the New York State Thruway. In June 2012, some concrete fell from the bridge on to the thruway below.

In response to concerns raised by local officials and County Legislator Shimsky about bridge conditions, the county conducted  additional inspections of the bridge, initiated a $1.5 million capital project amendment to address the bridge's immediate needs and organized an effort to expedite, if possible, the $24 million long-term capital project for the bridge's rehabilitation slated to begin construction in 2015.

The project has been awarded to EE Cruz & Company, Inc. in the amount of $17,902,768.   The construction phase is scheduled to commence in January 2016 and be completed in September 2018.

The bridge was built in 1950 and today carries 20,170 vehicles per day (2012 volumes). The 30 month project will be broken into 3 primary stages. During Stages 1 & 2 Ashford Avenue will be reduced from four (4) lanes [two (2) lanes in each direction] to two (2) lanes [one (1) lane in each direction]. In order to reduce the impacts on Ashford Avenue, pre-stage activities will occur from project onset with only night and midday lane closures on Ashford Avenue. In addition, the Entrance and Exit Ramp to the Northbound Saw Mill River Parkway (SMRP) will be closed prior to the commencement of Stage 1. During Stage 2, the Northbound Exit will be reopened but the NB Entrance will remain closed until Stage 3.
