Bayonne Bridge Closed Through Monday Due To Renovations

BAYONNE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- There's a commuter alert this weekend.

The Bayonne Bridge will be closed through Sunday as crews work to remove and lift portions of the bridge, CBS 2 reported.

The work is part of a $1.3 billion project to raise the roadway and give larger ships access to area ports.

The bridge closed on Friday night at 9 p.m. and will not reopen until 5 a.m. on Monday.

Drivers can take the Goethals Bridge as an alternative route.
