Waverly Avenue Bridge Replacement Project
Latest Project Updates
The Waverly Avenue Bridge remains open to traffic due to delays associated with relocation of overhead utilities. Please be advised the Waverly Avenue Bridge will be closed in both directions once preparatory construction activities are completed. Notification of bridge closure will be provided via the variable message boards posted around the Village and on the Town's Informational Website. The closure is necessary to facilitate the replacement of the bridge. Motorists should follow the posted detour utilizing Hoyt Avenue as an alternate route. Access to local businesses in the vicinity of the bridge will be maintained at all times. The duration of the Bridge Closure is currently expected to be 10 months. Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones.
Construction activities are currently underway for the Replacement of the Waverly Ave Bridge over the Sheldrake River in the Village of Mamaroneck. The construction contract was awarded by the Town of Mamaroneck to ELQ Industries, Inc. in Summer 2023. Design of the replacement bridge incorporated recommendations from the 2017 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Flood Risk Management Final Report. Specifically, replacing the bridge structure with a longer span and deeper foundations will complement the Army Corps of Engineers’ plans to widen the channel and coincide with other recommended flood mitigation measures through the Sheldrake and Mamaroneck Rivers. The Bridge Replacement will address structural deficiencies of the existing bridge crossing but also benefit the community by providing an improved roadway alignment and new sidewalks on both sides of the bridge. Other site work incidental to the bridge replacement includes relocation and replacement of underground and overhead utilities including water, sewer, electric, and natural gas. The project schedule estimates 10 months of construction with a completion date in Summer 2024.
The Town of Mamaroneck received grant funding towards the Waverly Avenue Bridge Project in the amounts of $1.75 M through the NYS Department of Transportation BridgeNY program; and $2.084M through Westchester County’s Flood Mitigation Grant program. Requirements of both grant programs are being implemented through the construction of the replacement bridge.
Bi-weekly construction meetings will be held for the duration of the project schedule with the project team including representatives from both the Town of Mamaroneck and Village of Mamaroneck. The Town and Village will continue to coordinate and collaborate throughout the construction progress and respond to issues as they arise.

The Project Team understands that impacts from Bridge Construction will cause short-term unavoidable inconvenience. We urge the public to have patience as the long-term benefits from the Waverly Avenue Bridge Replacement will provide increased resiliency for the community during storm events and improved pedestrian and traffic safety along this corridor.
