Westchester Avenue Bridge – Bronx NY

Description

 

Federal Public Works Administration funds were used to construct a span for Westchester Avenue over the Bronx River during the 1930s (Docket No. NY 1376 R). In one photo caption it is called “Bridge at Whitlock and Westchester Aves.”; Whitlock Avenue lies west of what is not the Sheridan Expressway.

The span has since been modified and has otherwise lost its Art Deco character.

The 6 subway line travels on an elevated train bridge above this Westchester Avenue span.
