Four More Weeks for Yonkers Ave. Project

Project Manager Karen Ashton reported this week that the Streambank Protection along Yonkers Ave. in Tuckahoe is expected to wrap up in approximately four weeks.


In their weekly update to the village, contractors provided new information for the residents of Tuckahoe, reporting that finalization of the project is well underway and that work is expected to be completed in about four more weeks, putting off any hope of Yonkers Ave. re-opening until at least November.

Project Manager Karen Ashton stated that construction has been going well since resuming work on the retaining wall along Yonkers Ave. on Tuesday Sept. 11 and that about 50% of the necessary finalization work has been completed.

"Nine additional piles remain to be installed to finalize this portion of the contract and the existing casings that were previously installed will be removed and re-installed to ensure the structural integrity of the project with removal of these casings scheduled for Monday and/or Tuesday Oct. 1-2," stated Ashton.

Currently, the Corps expects approximately four additional weeks of construction remaining on this contract and once all the pipe piles/sheet piles are installed, the Village of Tuckahoe may begin the process of opening Yonkers Avenue. 

Superintendent of Public Works Frank DiMarco has previously stated that once the village re-gains control of the roadway that his crews can have at least one lane of traffic flowing within 1-2 weeks time.
