Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Created a Promo Video Explaining the New Bayonne Bridge

Originally opened in 1931, the Bayonne Bridge was shut down in 2013 to undergo a massive project to raise the deck by 64 feet, allowing larger container ships and vessels to pass below. Ofter 4 years of construction, the new bridge has now opened to the public. In this short video from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, see how and why they did it.

This 80-second video explains the need to raise Bayonne Bridge's roadbed 215 feet.
