Greater Navigational Clearance Brings World’s Largest Vessels, Regional Economic Growth

Port Authority of NY & NJ: "The U.S. Coast Guard certified the bridge’s new navigational clearance at 215 feet – equivalent to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge – allowing vessels up to 18,000 TEUs to travel underneath it to port terminals. The Bayonne Bridge’s lower roadway removal was completed seven months ahead of a revised year-end schedule to increase clearance capacity from 151 feet and the maximum vessel size from 9,800 TEUs."
