Bayonne Bridge to close overnight for construction

Posted: Updated:

BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) - The Bayonne Bridge will be closed overnight for the next three days for more construction.

Workers will install posts between the new northbound and southbound lanes between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as part of the $1.3 billion project to raise the roadway.

Traffic between New Jersey and Staten Island will be diverted to the Goethals Bridge

The JFK Boulevard northbound on-ramp and southbound off-ramp in Bayonne will be closed for the duration of the project.

The bridge-raising project will raise the 82-year-old bridge's roadway by 64 feet in order to accommodate larger cargo ships anticipated to begin using the expanded Panama Canal by the end of 2015.
