Yonkers Ave. Nears Completion in Tuckahoe

The long awaited reopening of Yonkers Ave. in Tuckahoe may soon become a reality as contractors who have been working on the site for months are in the process of demobilizing their equipment.


No target date has been set by the Village of Tuckahoe just yet but it is safe to say that Yonkers Ave. will soon be reopened to traffic, bringing to an end a long and frustrating process of reconstruction to provide long term erosion protection of the stream bank which helps stabilize Yonkers Ave.

"No damage or delay for the project was caused by Hurricane Sandy and construction of the pipe pile/sheet pile combination retaining wall has been completed," stated Project Manager Karen Ashton in her weekly site update.

The next phase will be the process of opening Yonkers Ave. which would be done by Tuckahoe DPW.

All that is left is additional construction by the Army Corps at the “bend” of the stream, which is being conducted and the contractor has already started mobilizing equipment and material to the site.

This construction will not affect or delay the re-opening of Yonkers Avenue according to officials.

Check back soon with Patch for more information on when Yonkers Ave. will be reopened to traffic in Tuckahoe.

I'm pretty sure this work has been going on for nearly four years. Where did you get that it's been going on for months?

The real work only started about a year ago.

Thanks so much to village of Tuckahoe for keeping us up to date on the project...NOT!

Well, I'll be waiting. The closure has been a travesty for the businesses in that section of Tuckahoe for years. The work should have been a priority for them. Joyce Balint
