Bayonne welcomes largest container ship to ever call on Port of N.Y. and N.J. "The Port Authority noted that while the largest ships cannot travel under the Bayonne Bridge until 2017, ships can still dock at GCT Bayonne — just not at all the terminals at the port.
The $1.3 billion "Raise the Roadway" bridge project, which began in May 2013, is designed to raise the navigational clearance under the crossing from 151 feet to 215 feet to allow larger ships to travel under it.
The project was originally slated to achieve navigational clearance this year in time for the completion of the Panama Canal's expansion, but that was pushed back to late 2017, the Port Authority announced last fall."
