Effective immediately and continuing until Monday, April 21, the Fulton Avenue Drawbridge between Secor Lane and Edison Avenue in Mount Vernon and Pelham Manor will be closed to vehicular traffic.
This closure is necessary to repair electrical malfunctions on the drawbridge. The bridge had been previously closed from January-March to correct structural steel deficiencies detected by inspectors. A large scale rehabilitation project is currently being designed to eliminate the need for the interim repairs of the last several years.
The Fulton Avenue Bridge connects Mount Vernon to Rt. 1 in addition to the area’s major retail corridor. The posted detour route uses Pelham Parkway to Boston Post Road to Provost Avenue to South Third Avenue to South Columbus Avenue to South Fulton Avenue.
