MBP provided scheduling, project controls, cost estimating, and dispute resolution services. The project consisted of the complete replacement of the existing bridge deck and New Jersey and New York concrete viaduct approaches to the Bayonne Bridge. To meet the increased height of the PANAMAX container ships that travel through the new Panama Canal, the bridge was raised 65 feet, from 150 feet above the Kill Van Kull to 215 feet above. This project utilized innovative construction techniques, requiring staged construction to keep traffic flowing in both directions with minimal disruption during construction.

“The project is very unique and we’ve had a tremendous amount of challenges and we’ve had the good fortune to have MBP be our schedule team here to support all of our efforts. They’ve been able to keep us on point to identify critical tasks that the project team needs to keep our eye on. They’ve been a tremendous asset to me, to the project, and I know on behalf of the Port Authority, they really appreciate everything that the MBP team has brought to the Bayonne team. Thank you.”
