The Fort Washington Pedestrian Bridge, or "Amtrak Bridge," at West 180th Street is temporarily closed. The support structure and the surface decking will be repaired starting Monday, Oct. 1. Repairs should take about 30 days to complete, 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.
