The Hutchinson River Parkway, known as the Hutch, is a north-south parkway in southern New York in the United States. It extends for 18.71 miles from the massive Bruckner Interchange in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx to the New York–Connecticut state line at Rye Brook.

Construction of the Parkway began in 1924 and was completed in 1941 and was named after Anne Hutchinson, a Westchester resident and one of the 17th-century pioneers of religious freedom in the American colonies.

In June 2018, Westchester County executives became increasingly frustrated with the number of trucks finding their way onto the Parkway, crashing into overpasses, and snarling traffic.
