FMC Doyle remarks for North American Ports Association

AJOT.COM: "In New York and New Jersey, work continues on raising the Bayonne Bridge’s clearance from 151 feet to 211 feet. The Port Authority reports that vehicles will begin using the new upper roadway deck by mid-2017 with larger ships being able to pass under the bridge by late 2017. Additionally, a $2.1 billion project to dredge the harbor to 50 feet was completed last month. Capacity and efficiency gains will also be made from a $1.6 million grant from MARAD to improve the Port’s barge program and to create the first-of-its-kind New York Harbor Crane Operators Training Center."
