Daytime And Night Closures Impact All Traffic
Bridge To Remain Open Columbus Day Weekend
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has announced the Bayonne Bridge will be closing weekdays this week to accommodate continued construction, as part of the Navigational Clearance Project.
Bridge closures will affect all traffic across the bridge between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Friday this week, and overnight closures on the bridge will affect traffic from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. until Friday morning.
Officials with the PANYNJ plan to keep the Bayonne Bridge open through the Columbus Day weekend, beginning at 3 p.m. this Friday, October 7.
The Bayonne Bridge is currently undergoing a multi-year reconstruction that will raise the span to accommodate larger sea vessels. The Raise The Road Project, as it is dubbed by the port authority, is scheduled for completion in 2019.
