New Rochelle, Mamaroneck partner to repair iconic bridge

Officials of the city and town gathered on the bridge for the announcement

NEW ROCHELLE - The City of New Rochelle and Town of Mamaroneck are teaming up to provide a major rehabilitation to the Pryer Manor Road bridge.

The two-lane structure provides two lanes of travel over the tidal waters of Premium River at its junction with Premium Mill Pond. The waterways form the boundary between the Village of Larchmont in the Town of Mamaroneck to the east and the City of New Rochelle to the West.

The original construction of the bridge is known, but a major rehab was performed back in the early 1990s. Due to the tidal action, the arched openings have deteriorated and are subject to continued corrosion.

The major work of the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year with the remainder next spring. It will provide repairs to the abutments and arches, seal the transverse deck joints, repair or replace the ornamental concrete end-posts and clean and paint the concrete parapets and deck overhang.

The estimated cost of the project is some $500,000.

“Beyond being a necessary investment in infrastructure and safety, this project illustrates that a strong partnership between New Rochelle and Mamaroneck can deliver value and efficiency for our residents and taxpayers,” said New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson.
