A $21.3 million project to replace the north and southbound bridges carrying the Sprain Brook Parkway over Route 119 in Elmsford is underway, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sept. 4.
Ecco III Enterprises Inc., based in Yonkers, is the contractor for the project, which is expected to create up to 300 jobs and to be completed by early summer of 2015, the governor’s office said in a release.
The two new bridges will be single-span, multi-girder structures with concrete decks, each measuring just over 180 feet.
The bridge represents one of a number of public works and infrastructure projects across the state that have been accelerated under Cuomo’s NY Works initiative designed to spur economic development and job creation.
“Replacing these two bridges in Westchester County will provide a more efficient and secure corridor for the more than 100,000 vehicles that cross it every day, while creating hundreds of jobs for the region,” Cuomo said in a prepared statement.
