Paul van Hagen will talk about the raising of the Bayonne Bridge.

The Bayonne Bridge, connecting Bayonne, New Jersey with Staten Island, New York, is the third longest steel arch bridge in the world and was the longest in the world at the time of its completion in 1931.

The “Raise the Roadway” project is a comprehensive program to raise the clearance of the Bayonne Bridge which accesses lower New York harbour and the Hudson River.

The main objective of the project is to provide a navigable route for container vessels, with heights exceeding 61m, to the Port of New York and New Jersey.

To achieve this goal, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey increased the navigational clearance of the existing 504m long steel arch from 47m to 66m above mean high water by raising the existing roadway within the arch and rebuilding all the approach bridge structures.

The presentation will address major elements of work with an emphasis on the structural work that was performed on the eighty-two-year-old arch.

Speaker

Paul van Hagen Professional Engineer, ATKINS Chief Engineer (formerly HDR)
