Port of NY & NJ Plans for 30 Years of Growth
Port of NY & NJ Plans for 30 Years of Growth: "The largest container vessels cannot presently call at its largest facilities, which suffer from an air draft restriction imposed by the Bayonne Bridge, with a clearance of 150 feet. Contractors are presently working on raising the roadway further up the span's arch to bring maximum air draft to 215 feet – sufficient to handle New Panamax vessels – and the improved clearance is expected for late 2017, with full completion in mid-2019."
