During the week, bridge is closed Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Mondays through Thursdays from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. On some weekdays, the Bayonne Bridge opens a half hour earlier at 4:30 a.m. to provide an auxiliary route for drivers who cannot use the Goethals Bridge because of 4:30 to 5 a.m. traffic holds there.

The Bayonne Bridge project is being undertaken to raise the span’s roadway 64 feet to 215 feet. This will allow larger vessels expected from the Panama Canal in the future to pass under the bridge.
