Commuters warned to steer clear of Fisher Lane Bridge

Drivers, Metro-North commuters and even cyclists are being warned to steer clear of the Fisher Lane Bridge this weekend.

The Greenburgh bridge will be ripped down and a bridge with new steel girders that meet current state Department of Transportation standards will go up in its place.

The roadway was only built in 1999, but workers say that its steel beams have already rusted out. Crews blame the rapid deterioration on road salt and water from the Bronx River.

The new bridge is expected to be open in time for the Monday morning commute.
