BAYONNE Ground-breaking ceremony for new 25th Street pedestrian bridge over the railroad gap between Avenue E and Prospect Avenue

Ground-breaking ceremony for new 25th Street pedestrian bridge in Bayonne: City Officials and Grade Construction, the building contractor, held a ground-breaking ceremony for the replacement 25th Street pedestrian bridge.  The existing bridge was constructed in 1970. The new span will have elevators that will make it handicapped accessible. The older bridge will be demolished before the new one is constructed in its place. Project completion is expected in either late 2021 or early 2022.  Like the existing bridge, the new one will connect Avenue E and Prospect Avenue over the tracks for Hudson Bergen Light Rail and freight railroads.
