Mayor surveys damage caused by wall collapse along Henry Hudson Parkway

Part of the Henry Hudson Parkway remains buried under tons of rubble after Thursday?s retaining wall collapse. Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R-NY) took another survey of the damage Friday afternoon. So far, he says it looks like no one was injured in the collapse. The mayor and transportation officials are warning drivers to avoid the area until things get back to normal. Traffic was opened on the southbound lanes of parkway Thursday, but the northbound lanes remain closed at West 178th Street to Dyckman Street. Two lanes of northbound traffic are expected to reopen by Monday. The mayor says the priority is to stabilize the site and get traffic back to normal in a safe manner.
