The AMVETS Bridge on the Taconic State Parkway.

The Taconic State Parkway (TSP) northbound bridge over the New Croton Reservoir will be closed beginning Monday, March 26, through Friday, Nov. 9, to perform extensive bridge repairs on the AMVETS Bridge.

Northbound traffic will be moved onto the southbound TSP roadway with only two lanes in each direction instead of the usual three lanes in each direction.

The Department of Transportation strongly encourage commuters to use other state highways such as I‐84, I‐684, Route 9, Route 9A and the Saw Mill River Parkway while the bridge is closed. For trip planning and current roadway conditions, call 511 or visit
