Bayonne Bridge

CORE Environmental Consultants, Inc.: "CORE Environmental Consultants, Inc. (CORE) was hired by Ahern Painting Contractors, Inc. to complete air and noise monitoring services as part of the lead paint abatement and repainting of the Bayonne Bridge. The bridge spans the Kill Van Kull, linking Bayonne, NJ, with the Port Richmond area of Staten Island, NY and is owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ). The bridge has a mid-span clearance of 150 feet that permits oceangoing vessels to use this entrance to Port Newark and the Elizabeth-Port Authority Marine Terminal without interference. The specific lead removal methods used by Ahern include: abrasive blasting, chemical stripping, hand-scraping and power-scraping (needle-gun scaler). CORE performed work area and containment air monitoring, as well as noise monitoring."
