Port Authority Submits Preliminary Bridge Modification Application to US Coast Guard

A preliminary application has been received by the Commander, First Coast Guard District from
the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) for a U. S. Coast Guard Bridge
Permit for modification to the Bayonne Bridge across Kill Van Kull between Staten Island, NY
and Bayonne, NJ. PANYNJ proposes to increase the navigational clearance beneath the bridge
by raising the vehicular roadway within the existing tied arch truss structure.
