Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has advised the City of Bayonne concerning the latest developments in the Bayonne Bridge construction project.
The assembly of the gantry is 95% complete. The gantry will have a load and performance test on December 8. This gantry will carry the pre-cast roadway slabs to the new piers. The piers are the columns that will hold up the roadway. The crane height will start at 120 feet and then grow to 300 feet once it gets closer to the Kill Van Kull. The crane started constructing new piers on November 14 near Margaret Street and 5th Street. The gantry base is at 6th Street and travels the entire length of the bridge. Sometime this fall, another crane will be in service working on the south end of Bayonne near 1st Street. Continue reading Bayonne Bridge Construction Update from the City of Bayonne→

The Port Authority is using this alternating traffic pattern for those two days, in order to install delineators, which were knocked out. Delineators are rubber devices that separate traffic into lanes.
