According to the Port Authority the Bayonne Bridge will be closed this weekend from 9 p.m. Friday, October 9th to 5 a.m. Monday October 12th. The bridge's alternate shuttle service will also not run this weekend. All of these closures are to help speed up the process of reconstructing the bridge. Port Authority recently announced that the completion of the project is going to take longer than expected. For traffic updates, call 511 or visit www.511NY.org.
The photo above shows the projected outcome of the "Raise the Roadway" Bayonne Bridge reconstruction. The plan is to raise the roadway on the bridge a total of 64 feet. The recent announcement from the Port Authority says the project is going to take two years longer than they had initially projected.
