Skanska Koch is a member of a joint venture that has been awarded a $743.3 million contract as part of the Port Authority’s $1.29 billion bridge construction program to increase the navigational clearance of the Bayonne Bridge. The project will raise the deck by 64 feet and provide drivers with a new, modern roadway with safer 12-foot lanes, shoulders, a median divider and a 12foot bike and pedestrian walkway. It also will provide the capability for future mass transit options across the span.

Major Facets:

  • New suspended span roadway
  • New concrete approach piers, new approach structure and approach roadways
  • Construction of new approach abutments
  • Construction of specialized foundations including drilled shafts and micro-piles
  • Demolition of existing approach
  • Roadway and approach piers
