THE BRONX - A deteriorating Bronx bridge is finally getting some much-needed repairs.

A viewer voiced their concerns about the overpass, which provides access to the 174th Street subway station, saying that it’s been falling apart for years.

News 12 reached out to the Department of Transportation about the issue last month and found crews putting up a new fence this week as part of a repair plan.

The DOT says it also installed metal gratings in crumbling spots as a safety precaution.
