The first span of the New Goethals Bridge connecting Staten Island and New Jersey is open today. The new bridge replaces the existing 89-year-old bridge which will soon be dismantled. In 2018, the second span of the bridge will be completed, and traffic will be split between them. In this time lapse video from the Staten Island Advance, see the spans construction over the past year.
