There are just six more weeks of major construction work remaining on the project that’s closed Yonkers Avenue in Tuckahoe for more than a year.
Construction officially resumed on the project on Sept. 11, according to a Sept. 14 report issued by project manager Karen Ashton from the Army Corps of Engineers.
The $2.3 million project involves replacing a deteriorating natural embankment along a roughly 400-foot stretch of road that abuts the Bronx River. The roadway has been closed since August 2011, when Tropical Storm Irene undermined the roadbed. Construction began briefly this spring, but was halted by the Corps when problems with the construction design came to light.
The new report noted that after the six weeks of construction to install the retaining wall is complete, the Village of Tuckahoe can begin the process of paving and reopening the roadway.
