CROTON FALLS - The Westchester Department of Transportation is widening a bridge across the Croton River in Croton Falls between Somers and North Salem.
The project, which began last year, will bring wider traffic lanes and a sidewalk.
The latest work is temporarily closing the bridge as contractors install the first beams for the new structure.

The small bridge is an important part of northern Westchester's transportation system, as scores of commuters walk across it every day to get to the Croton Falls Metro-North station.
The project will cost Westchester County $2.4 million. It is set to be finished late this year.
