ELMSFORD, N.Y. — Portions of the Saw Mill River Parkway north of I-287 and the Bronx River Parkway have been closed off for flooding, according Westchester County police.

The Saw Mill River Parkway is closed from the Taconic State Parkway to Manville Road. Heading north, traffic is being diverted onto the Taconic, and traffic coming southbound is being diverted to Manville Road in Pleasantville, police said.

On the Bronx River Parkway, the Main Street area in White Plains is closed from flooding both north- and southbound, police said.

Other major roads, such as the Sprain Brook Parkway north of I-287, the Taconic State Parkway and Route-9A, have wet conditions from the heavy rain Friday, according to NYSDOT.

Farther north in Ossining, both lanes of Route 9A were  closed starting at the intersection with Route 134. The left lane was closed southbound, police said.

....and Dobbs Ferry still wants to have the monstrosity of Rivertowns Square built right in this flood zone!

WPEyesNEars:

Again it rains, again we flood and most importantly, again Feiner et al has done nothing but talk about all the work others have done to correct the problem. Again, nothing accomplished and the same people along the Saw Mill and Bronx Rivers suffer. At least they cleaned out the Saw Mill. NOTHING has been done along the Bronx River – but thankfully there’s a task force to study it! Now the politicians can get more press publicity while actually doing nothing. Why fix it when they can talk about it, point fingers and shrug their shoulders? What a shame the residents have been abandoned!
