Work to Begin on Three Bridges in Bronxville PDF Print Email


By Staff

Mar. 20, 2019:  Over the next couple of years, three bridges in Bronxville will be repaired. These are the bridges on Palmer Road, Midland Avenue, and Pondfield Road West.

The Palmer Road bridge is the bridge on Palmer Road over the Bronx River Parkway near NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital. Work on this bridge is slated to begin in April and there will be no westbound traffic into Yonkers while it is being repaired. The work will include concrete repairs, decking, stonework, and waterproofing. This bridge work is being funded by Westchester County.

The Midland Avenue bridge is the bridge on Midland Avenue that goes over the Bronx River Parkway. This bridge requires a more complex repair. The center pier and joints will be repaired and the steel beams will be sanded and painted. Con Edison will also need to replace the existing gas line. While this project is under way, traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction rather than two lanes. This repair will begin in late summer and will be funded by Westchester County. There could be some overlap in the timing of the work on the Palmer Road and Midland Avenue bridges.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
