Local traffic will be able to enter the northbound Bronx River Parkway at Paxton Avenue, Elm Street, Scarsdale Road, Thompson Street and Leewood Drive. Cars entering at these points will be diverted at Harney Road to Scarsdale Avenue and East Parkway, re-entering the parkway at Crane Road.

The northbound Bronx River Parkway will be open to traffic at Crane Road and all points north.
