It's a National Historic [Civil Engineering] Landmark. It's not going anywhere.

Besides, the fact that the design is extremely sensible (cost- and design-wise), at least there are provisions to bring the HBLR across to SI..."eventually".

I agree that it will lose some visual appeal, but that is not everything, and if they tore it down it just will be lost.


Replacing it with a tunnel would cost twice as much as the work they are doing, they better spend that money in other projects.

Also, a replacement would took several years, during that time the ships won't be able to pass bellow the bridge. The roadway raising is projected to be completed by 2019, but they say that they can dismantle the present roadway in 2017, allowing the larger ships to pass bellow it beggining next year.

A very informative, recent YIMBY article about the bridge:
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/04/bayo...ch-bridge.html


Anyway I think it still will look gorgeous, here's a rendereing on how it will look like, I think it's not bad at all.




Some drive thru videos of the bridge, where you can see the works. Not very recent, from september and october, but still pretty cool, worth to see them.






In this videos they explain how they are doing the job of raising the roadway.

Ah, they should have been really forward thinking and gone with putting the deck going over the top of the arch (deck arch bridge). You know they will build an even bigger ship in the future.

For those who have suggested the demolition of the Bayonne Bridge: As someone who initially thought that the roadway-raising project would mess up/ruin the look of the Bayonne Bridge, I think if you were to tear down the existing bridge, you would have had to just replace it with a larger version of it. I'm also taking into consideration the fact that the only other through arch bridge in the NYC area is the Hell Gate Bridge (which is a rail bridge, BTW).

Because that's only half of it. After they finish this half they will move the traffic up to the new road. Then they can construct the other halves of the pillars and the rest of the roadway.

Note the big yellow pipes, those are temporary bracing to help the pillars handle the asymmetric loads of the roadway already placed. Once they construct the other half it will all be balanced out.

The lower, older deck has been demolished,
With that, the bigger ships are already able of passing under it.

Totally agree with you.

Higher bridge = longer or steeper approaches.

Now is it okay to start judging the Bayonne Bridge's new deck? Does it look better or worse than it was previously?

If they were going to go for a higher roadbed, then they would have revoked the existing bridge's historic designation, and replace it with a cable-stayed bridge. I'm sure the roadway-raising project could already hurt the existing bridge's historic protection. It is obvious that there is no technology available to jack up the entire bridge or just the bridge's arch. Historical protection is always a hindrance to technology advances.

I like it! It brings a smile to my face knowing that we had the ability to construct a deck above the original using the same arch while still keeping the bridge open to traffic at peak times. The arch was saved and there will be a far better (wider / newer / higher) bicycle / pedestrian pathway as well on the New York City skyline side.
