Bayonne Bridge Closings Most Nights in January and February

The Port Authority has advised the City of Bayonne that the Bayonne Bridge will be closed most nights in January and February 2014. In the first two months of 2014, the bridge will be closed Monday through Thursday from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., and from 12:00 midnight Friday to 8:00 a.m. Saturday. The hours on Fridays differ from those of the other nights, because Mayor Mark A. Smith asked the Port Authority not to disrupt the busy Friday night trade at the food, beverage, and entertainment businesses on Route 440. During January and February, there will be no night closings on Saturday and Sunday overnights and holiday weekends. During closure hours for the Bayonne Bridge, all traffic will be diverted to the Goethals Bridge.
The Port Authority has also advised the City of Bayonne that up to eight full weekend closures of the Bayonne Bridge will be required each year during the construction period. These weekend closures will be announced in advance. The dates are not yet available. There will be no weekend closures on Saturday and Sunday overnights in the summer or on holiday weekends.
The Port Authority Hotline number is 855-265-5482.
