The Fort Washington Pedestrian Bridge, or "Amtrak Bridge," at West 180th Street is temporarily closed as we work with NYC DOT and Amtrak to repair the support structure and the surface decking. Repairs should be complete by mid-November depending upon weather and site conditions. Detour: If you are approaching the Amtrak bridge from the north, please use the 181st Street pedestrian bridge over the Henry Hudson Parkway at Riverside Drive to access local streets. You can re-enter the Greenway at either West 158th Street and the Henry Hudson Parkway or at West 153rd Street and Riverside Drive via the Herman “Denny” Farrell Pedestrian Bridge. If you are approaching the bridge from the south, please exit the Greenway at either West 158th Street and the Henry Hudson Parkway or at West 153rd Street and Riverside Drive via the Herman “Denny” Farrell Pedestrian Bridge. You can re-enter the Greenway via the 181st Street pedestrian bridge over the Henry Hudson Parkway at Riverside Drive. Please follow us @nycparks on Twitter or check this page again for updates as soon as we know when the bridge will re-open.
