Periodic Weekday Traffic Holds to Begin Mid-November

Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Project   The Port Authority of NY   NJ

Beginning mid-November 2014, periodic 20-minute Bayonne Bridge traffic holds are required for motorist safety during installation of pier segments above the roadway.

This critical work is being performed during daytime hours to minimize nighttime construction noise impacts to communities in Staten Island and Bayonne, and allow the work to proceed more efficiently.

Work Hours
20-minute traffic holds, beginning at the top of the hour, may occur weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Traffic holds will vary in quantity and frequency as construction proceeds.

Please use the Goethals Bridge as an alternate route during these hours.
