The first span of the New Goethals Bridge connecting Staten Island and New Jersey opened earlier this month. 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 a time lapse of the day traffic switched over between the old and new bridges.
On June 9, the old Goethals Bridge closed, and on June 10, one of the two new spans opened to traffic.
