BAYONNE, New Jersey — Motorists who use the Bayonne Bridge will need to find an alternate route.

The span, which connects Bayonne with Staten Island, New York, will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Motorists should consider using the Goethals Bridge.

Workers will be removing portions of the bridge and lifting large steel and concrete sections onto the span.

The closure is part of a $1.3 billion project to raise the roadway to give larger ships access to New York and New Jersey ports. The new bridge roadway will have wider lanes and a median.
