You’re soon going to know just how much you used to use the Weaver Street Bridge- that’s the passage over I-95 on Weaver Street (Rte. 125) between Palmer Avenue and Myrtle Boulevard and one of the most heavily traveled areas in the lower county. And it needs repairing. It will close from about June 3 until about July 24.
A joint notice from the Town of Mamaroneck and the Mamaroneck School District announces the bridge will close to traffic on or about June 3, and to pedestrians on June 23. The pedestrian access is to allow students at Hommocks, Mamaroneck High School and Central School access until school is out.
“While we are pleased that the NYSDOT has accomodated our request to maintain pedestrian access through the remainder of the school year, we plan to study all issues related to the impact of this project, including increased traffic on alternative routes, acknowledgement of the extra time required for students to get to school, re-design of bus transportation routes (e.g. pick up and drop off times) and all other related safety issues,” the announcement says.
Traffic will be re-routed over the Rockland Avenue Bridge in Mamaroneck and the Chatsworth Avenue Bridge near the train station in Larchmont.
