BAYONNE, NJ - While plans to launch ferry service between Bayonne and Manhattan in September may be delayed as a result of COVID-19, the Bayonne City Council is still working to bring the new transportation option to the community.

On Wednesday members of the body voted to approve an agreement between LEG Bayonne Owner LLC and the Port Authority for the construction of a north/south connector road linking Port Terminal Boulevard with Port Lincoln Road.

This connector, in the area where the former offices of the Bayonne Local Redevelopment Authority were located, and near to where the terminal is expected to built, will “improve traffic flow” to and from the eventual service, Law Director Jay Coffey said.
