BAYONNE BRIEFS: "Bridge to be closed this weekend for continued project work
The Bayonne Bridge will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, May 2, and continuing through 5 a.m. Monday, May 5, to allow work to proceed on the “Raise the Roadway” project, which will allow larger, more efficient ships to access the region's port terminals.
The scheduled weekend work will allow for the safe removal of portions of the structure of the bridge and for the lifting of large steel and concrete sections onto the bridge.
Motorists should consider using the Goethals Bridge as an alternative.
Additional full weekend closures are expected throughout the year and will be announced.
