The Bayonne Bridge raising project is ahead of schedule

According to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the project to raise the roadway of the bridge will be completed earlier than projected. The deck removal portion of the project will be completed by the fall of 2015 instead of the original target of mid-2016.

“Completing this important project ahead of schedule will ensure that our ports remain a vital link to the global economy and the destination of choice for international shippers and cargo,” Governor Chris Christie said.
