County Executive George Latimer announcing the reopening of the Ashford Avenue BridgeFeb. 6, 2018 -- Motorists are advised that the entrance/exit ramp (exit 17) to the northbound Saw Mill River Parkway at Ashford Avenue in Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry has reopened today, approximately four months ahead of schedule. The ramp reconstruction is part of the Ashford Avenue Bridge and Ramp Rehabilitation Project. The ramp was previously closed on March 14, 2016.

The ramp opening indicates a substantial completion of the project with major items of work completed. Several weeks ago the final stage of construction, commenced with Ashford Avenue restored to four lanes, with two lanes in each direction during peak hours. Although Ashford Avenue has been restored to two lanes in each direction during peak hours, single lane closures may occur in each direction during off-peak hours. This final stage of construction will last until this summer when minor items are completed in warmer weather.

The $17.9 million project to fully rehabilitate the Ashford Avenue Bridge and Ramp along the border of Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry started pre-construction on January 4, 2016, and began impacting traffic on March 1, 2016 with off-peak lane closures on Ashford Avenue, the Saw Mill River Parkway and the New York State Thruway (I-87). It is estimated that the entire project will be completed by this summer.
