Construction Management - The Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Program for 2012- 2018, Staten Island, NY/ Bayonne, NJ

Built in 1931 and one of the longest steel arch bridges, the Bayonne Bridge with a fixed suspended deck connects Bayonne, New Jersey to the Richmond area of Staten Island, New York spanning the Kill Van Kull. The mid-span clearance is 150 feet to permit ocean going vessels to use this entrance to Port Newark and the Elizabeth Port Authority Terminal. Raising the Bridge to approximately 215 feet navigational clearance will allow larger vessels to pass below the bridge and gain access to the port and marine terminals. The bridge has a daily traffic of 20,000 cars.
