The Department of Transportation (DOT) has scheduled two Cross Island Parkway overpasses for repair. Repairs to the 147th Street and 150th Street overpasses are currently in the design phase and are scheduled to begin construction in 2018.

In early May, State Senator Tony Avella wrote to DOT regarding the condition of the 150th Street overpass after he noticed large chunks of the wall fallen near the roadside on a trip to Albany.

DOT subsequently informed the Senator that their Division of Bridges examined the location and scheduled it for repair, along with the 147th Street location.

“The foundation wall of these bridges has been in disrepair for years,” said Avella. “However, recent storms have worsened the condition of the wall creating a dangerous situation for motorists.”
