Officials unveil Bayonne Bridge's elevated roadway
Officials from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have provided a first look at the Bayonne Bridge's elevated roadway, part of a $1.3 billion project to allow bigger ships to pass underneath to the Port of New York and New Jersey.
Clearance for ships will be raised more than 60 feet. It's expected that portion of the project will be ready by late next year.
Officials from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey gave a tour of the elevated roadway on Tuesday.
Larger ships initially were expected to pass by later this year. But the Port Authority has said there were construction delays related to weather and structural problems with the bridge's steel.
The entire project is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
