By Staff

Nov. 27, 2019: Have you noticed the work underway on the Midland Avenue Bridge, which is near the intersection of Midland Avenue and Parkway Road? You will see temporary signage and barriers to help cars navigate this area.

So what's going on here and how long with it last?

According to Bronxville Village Administrator, Jim Palmer, the Midland Avenue Bridge is being repaired and the work involves "new decking, joint replacement, and repairs to a pier underneath the bridge." Con Ed is also installing a new gas line in the bridge. The current gas line has to be relocated while the new one is installed and other bridgework is performed.  The Arben Group is the contractor performing the work under the oversight of the Westchester County traffic engineers and WSP Consulting Engineers. 

Kevin Roseman, the Westchester County traffic engineer in charge, reports that the Midland Avenue Bridge is part of a larger project that includes rehabilitating two bridges and the Bronx River Parkway from the Cross County Parkway to Scarsdale Road. The total project is expected to cost $18 million and is funded by Westchester County. 

According to Roseman, the work on the Midland Avenue Bridge is expected to continue "well into 2020."

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.
