Bayonne Bridge Planned Weekly Construction


Date: Jan 13, 2017

The Bayonne Bridge and Holland Tunnel will institute lane closings this weekend and/or next week due to ongoing construction and repair projects.

The closings, scheduled in conjunction with other regional agencies to minimize traffic impacts, are as follows:

Bayonne Bridge:

  • The Bayonne Bridge will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday, January 13 through 10 p.m. Saturday, January 14 to accommodate construction on the “Raise the Roadway” project, which will elevate the bridge's roadway to provide navigational clearance for neo-Panamax container vessels.
  • The bridge also closes during weekday hours: Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and overnight on Mondays through Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. On certain weekdays, the bridge will open at 4:30 a.m. to provide an alternate route for drivers affected by traffic holds on the Goethals Bridge.

Holland Tunnel:

  • One westbound lane in the Holland Tunnel will close during overnight hours from Monday, January 16 through Thursday January 19 from 11:59 p.m. each night through 5:30 a.m. the following morning. These closures are necessary for ongoing concrete repairs in the tunnel.
