Investment in Hudson County's major roadways is measured in billions | NJ.com

Investment in Hudson County's major roadways is measured in billions: Construction on the $1.3 billion "Raise the Roadway" project on the Bayonne Bridge is plowing ahead, the Port Authority reports.

The construction project, which began in May 2013 and is slated to be completed by 2017, is designed to raise the navigational clearance under the crossing to 215 feet to allow larger, modern ships to travel under it. The project will also provide commuters with a modern roadway with 12-foot lanes and a 12-foot shared lane for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The Port Authority recently reported that the launch of a gantry -- an overhead structure that places concrete slabs on top of new piers supporting the bridge -- is proceeding as planned."
