On September 7th, thanks to the Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Project, the CMA CGM T. ROOSEVELT will become the largest vessel ever to pass under the bridge. Let’s focus on the bridge’s elevation project, allowing larger vessels to pass under it.

Did you know? To accommodate larger ships calling at the container ports located in New Jersey and Staten Island, the Port Authority considered various options, including replacing the bridge entirely or constructing a tunnel in its place.
