TRAVEL ADVISORY - TRAFFIC HOLDS AT THE BAYONNE BRIDGE TO BEGIN IN MID-NOVEMBER IN SUPPORT OF THE BAYONNE BRIDGE RAISE THE ROADWAY PROJECT

Date: Nov 11, 2014
Press Release Number: 228-2014

Motorists are urged to sign up for e-alerts to receive real time information regarding the scheduling of traffic holds

Beginning in mid-November 2014, periodic 20-minute Bayonne Bridge traffic holds are required for motorist safety during the 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 and safely.

Twenty-minute traffic holds, always beginning at the top of the hour, may occur weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Traffic holds will vary in frequency as construction proceeds. Motorists should consider using the Goethals Bridge as an alternate route during these hours.

The first traffic hold is currently scheduled to occur on Friday, November 14. To receive real-time info regarding the 20-minutes holds, the Port Authority urges customers to register for e-alerts at www.paalerts.com.

Customers can find the most current schedule of closures and traffic holds on our website at www.panynj.gov/alerts-advisories/advisories.html. Sign up to receive updates via email at www.panynj.gov/bayonnebridge/ or follow us on Twitter @BayonneBridge.
