NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. The project to move utility lines from the North Avenue Bridge will continue Wednesday with a partial closure of the Interstate 95 entrance at Garden Street, the city said.
Motorists traveling south on North Avenue will not be able to make a left turn onto Garden Street, the city said. Drivers will be able to use Memorial Highway, by way of Lincoln Avenue, Lockwood Avenue or Huguenot Street, where detour signs are posted, to access I-95.
The phase is expected to last 90 days.
The entrance to Garden Street from North Avenue northbound will remain open. More information on the project can be found on the citys website.
The North Avenue Construction Project by New York State Thruway Authority is relocating electric, cable, telephone, water, fiber optic and natural gas lines from the existing North Avenue Bridge to a parallel span that was built in 2010, the city said.
The work on the utility lines is expected to be completed by May 2013, conditions permitting. The next phase of the project demolition and replacement of the North Avenue Bridge is scheduled to begin in 2015, the city said.
