Another Port Authority toll hike? (editorial) "And, to be fair, we can't say that the authority isn't spending the money. They are raising the Bayonne Bridge and building a Goethals Bridge twin, to name just two projects that will impact Staten Island. But even with that being said, the Bayonne raising is aimed primarily at helping the Port Authority itself, by allowing the new generation of larger "supercontainer" ships to pass underneath it, thus increasing business for the port. Not that Islanders won't appreciate the bridge's wider lanes and the bike and pedestrian walkways."
