Case Study

Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Program


SPR advised the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey with respect to the NEPA review of the raising of the Bayonne Bridge roadway to accommodate larger ships traversing the Kill Van Kull, resulting in a Finding of No Significant Impact and the issuance of a Bridge Permit Amendment by the U.S. Coast Guard. The firm also assisted with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation permitting. The matter is now in litigation.
