Description

The poor bridge design (lack of camber can crown) leads to the accumulation of water and water-carried debris on the surface of this pedestrian bridge over the Bronx River between Yonkers and Mt Vernon, near Bronxville. The three small drainage holes cut into the sides regularly clog with debris leading to ponding on the bridge. Even when the holes are cleared, the fine clay left behind makes for a slippery surface. In freezing conditions the ponded water often forms ice over the entire width of the bridge.
