Bayonne Bridge retrofit

Read an article in 11/13/17 New Yorker mag… that height will be lifted by additional 64 feet to accommodate taller cargo container ships. Think the channel will be dredged also.

What caught my eye was that because of opposing tides and a 127 degree turn into Newark Bay…“The maneuver is like carrying a dining room table through a bedroom door while stepping on slippery carpets. In fact, these thousand plus yards of the K.V. K. may be the trickiest passage in any major port in the world”

Quite a statement…

I don’t know about all that BUT, it is a sticky turn watching fully hooked up tugs bending the ships around Bergen PT.
