    New Jersey Bayonne Bridge to Close Saturday
    NBC10

    The Bayonne Bridge is closing as work continues to raise the span that links Bayonne with Staten Island, New York.

    Traffic will be turned away from 11:59 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Sunday.

    Crews will deliver and position strengthening plates and continue to erect the bridge's towers during the shutdown.

    Motorists should consider using the Goethals Bridge.

    The closure is part of a $1.3 billion project to raise the roadway to give larger ships access to New York and New Jersey ports. The new bridge roadway will have wider lanes and a median.
