Bayonne Bridge Replacement of Main Span Roadway and Approach Structures for Navigational Clearance

The Bayonne Bridge is operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. In anticipation of the Panama Canal expansion due for completion in 2015, the Port Authority intends to raise the Bayonne Bridge to allow for greater clearance for larger shipping vessels to pass underneath. This $743M program includes the construction of new approach viaducts to replace the existing ones, raising the roadway within the structural steel arch, new electrical systems, tie ins to existing roadway systems, foundations and staging as required to maintain two lanes of traffic with limited full traffic closings.
