Cuomo announces Sheridan Expressway to be demolished

The state will tear down the Bronx’s Sheridan Expressway and replace it with a pedestrian-friendly boulevard under a plan Gov. Cuomo announced Sunday.

The highway, which has separated South Bronx neighborhoods from the Bronx River since it was erected by Robert Moses decades ago, is set to be rebuilt as Sheridan Blvd. as part of the $1.8 billion plan.

“Building the Sheridan Expressway was a mistake,” Cuomo said Sunday at a Hunts Point community center, noting the Bronx River has been revitalized in recent years, with an inviting green space opened at the revamped Starlight Park. Cuomo announces Sheridan Expressway to be demolished
