Temporary Waterfront Promenade Open
June 8, 2018
The Edge-on-Hudson waterfront promenade is now open from dawn to dusk 7 days per week. This temporary path restores access to the Scenic Hudson RiverWalk to the south and Kingsland Point Park, to the north. This is the future location of a landscaped promenade that will be a central feature of Edge-on-Hudson. Please note that construction operations in the vicinity of the waterfront may require occasional closures of this path. In the meantime, with summer finally here – please enjoy the promenade for walking, jogging, biking, visiting the lighthouse or taking in Hudson River sunsets!

- Installation of more than 500 feet of stormwater pipe and five manholes on property is set for the initial two weeks of August. Westchester County has now completed testing of more than 1,800 feet of sanitary sewer line and 1,800 feet of water line previously installed on property
- Final grading for Phase 1 building pads

- ConEd is expected to complete manhole installation on lower Beekman Avenue in August
Barge Operations Completed
July 1, 2017
Edge-On-Hudson crossed another milestone with the completion of barge fill operations for the project. Nearly half of all fill for the development was supplied by barge, saving hundreds of truck trips through Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, for each barge delivery received. With fill operations nearing completion, the final barge delivery was accepted in late June and the spud barge receiving dock will be removed during the the first two weeks of July.
Additional work in the first several weeks of July will include:
- Relocation of the pedestrian sidewalk on the Beekman Avenue Bridge to the north side of the bridge, in preparation for demolition of the southern side of the old bridge later in summer
- Car traffic will be temporarily rerouted to the southern half of the bridge during the second week of July to accommodate ConEd work at the bridge
- The second week of July will also include pressure testing of the new sanitary water pipes at the roundabout
- Phase 1 road surcharge removal will continue, in preparation for road construction
