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 bridge is now open to the public, and the old bridge is being dismantled. In this short time lapse video from the Staten Island Advance, see the lower level as it is taken apart and removed.
Crews work on the Bayonne Bridge to remove the original roadway so larger ships can pass underneath.
