Description

The Bayonne Bridge was first built in 1931, connecting Staten Island, New York, with Bayonne, New Jersey. The bridges’ 151 ft. clearance over the Kill Van Kull Waterway accommodated vessels travelling from the Port of New York to New Jersey. The expansion of the Panama Canal in 2016 led to the emergence of enormous Panamax Cargo ships, resulting in the redevelopment of the Bayonne Bridge. The new design called for raising the roadbed to a height of 215 feet over the waterway followed by the demolition of the original roadbed. This project successfully concluded in February of 2017.

Scope

AEIS performed extensive high-strength bolting inspections on this project. Our special inspectors ensured that project specifications were met and that connected materials were suitable for their intended service-life. In determining the proper installation and strength of high-strength bolts, our team enhanced project-owner confidence in structural steel connections, a critical component to the functionality, longevity, and safety of bridges.
