$61.8 Million for the High Bridge Redevelopment, and now $1.3 Billion for the Bayonne Bridge
If you thought that spending $61.8 Million for the redevelopment of the High Bridge was a lot of money, hold onto your hat. The Bayonne Bridge that connects Staten Island to New Jersey over the Kill Van Kull will cost the Port of New York and New Jersey Authority $1.3 Billion to complete by 2017. The project will raise the roadbed from 151 feet to 215 feet so that the larger container ships may get to the Port of Newark, New Jersey.
