Port Welcomed Largest Container Ship Ever To Call On New York/New Jersey

Global Trade Magazine: "To prepare for the new larger ships, the Port Authority and its private-sector tenants have invested $6 billion in projects to prepare the port complex. The most critical investment is the raising of the roadway on the Bayonne Bridge, a $1.3 billion project that will increase the navigational clearance under the bridge from 151 feet to 215 feet. The bridge’s navigational clearance will be in place by the end of 2017, allowing all terminals to serve the largest ships calling the port. Ships docking at GCT Bayonne do not have to travel under the Bayonne Bridge."
