The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has awarded awarded a $743.3 million contract to the team of Skanska Hock, Inc. / Kiewit Infrastructure Co. (JV) as part of an overall $1.29 billion program to increase the navigational clearance program of the Bayonne Bridge. The project will raise the road deck by 64 feet. The new road deck will be safer, with 12-foot lanes, shoulders, a median divider, and a 12-foot bike and pedestrian walkway. It will also provide the capability for future mass transit options across the span.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has awarded awarded a 40-year design-build-finance-maintain contract to NYNJ Link Partnership as part of a $1.5 billion public-private partnership (PPP) to replace the current Goethals Bridge with a new state-of-the-art cable-stayed span. This will be the first bridge the Port Authority's built since 1931 when the George Washington Bridge opened to vehicular traffic. The project also marks the first true surface transportation public-private partnership in the Northeast.
