[VIDEO] Tour Staten Island's Newly Opened Bayonne Bridge in This Short Time Lapse

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. In this short time lapse video from the Staten Island Advance, see what it's like driving across the newly opened bridge.

Take a quick tour of the Bayonne Bridge's newly opened roadway and cashless toll. The entire deck of the span is being raised up to accommodate taller ships passing under it in the Kill Van Kull.
