Don't forget that they're also going to be raising the Bayonne bridge during the same time period!

As for the TP, the roadway is usually being worked on somewhere along it's length between May and October so it doesn't end up like the skyway. Should be a fun 2 or 3 years.

This bridge is that same design as the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis that collapsed a few years ago. After the collapse in Minn. extra reinforcing plates were added to the Pulaski Skyway bridge as a stop gap until it could be renovated.

The Pulaski Skyway is one of the worst bridges in the United States -- and it has been that way since the day it opened.

First, it was built to get truck traffic off the city streets (the route that resembles today's 1&9 Truck). However, the United States Navy forced the engineers to increase the clearance over the Passaic and Hackensack rivers at the last minute, creating a very steep incline leading up to the two bridges that has prohibited truck traffic from using the bridge from day #1.

Second, it was designed in the early 30s, before anyone knew anything about highways and ramps were placed on the left, creating one of the most dangerous driving situations in New Jersey.

Third, its truss system closely resembles that of the failed bridge that killed a dozen people and injured another 200 in Minneapolis. Driving the Skyway is like playing a game of russian roulette. Remember that the next time you drive across.


=================================


Edit: If a auto-bridge connecting Liberty State Park to Jersey Ave is completed before this project, imagine the clusterfuck at exit 14B and into Downtown JC.

I'll believe it. The Pulaski Skyway is certainly due for repair and it seems they are waiting for the years of construction on the Turnpike Extension and the Newark Bay Bridge to finally be completed. It's a shame that we can't have both open completely at the same time, but I suppose there aren't a lot of other options.

I am glad that the Skyway will still be open for outbound traffic, but it will be annoying to cough up $2.45 for the toll to come back from central Jersey every day.

Yes. Wow. It mentions that it will be closed for NY-bound commuters. Wonder if that means the South/West bound side out of NY will still be open initially. We'll have to wait for the announcement. This is pretty crappy for me since I drive on the Skyway almost every day.

Pulaski Skyway to close for 2 years after Super Bowl: report

By The Jersey Journal
on January 10, 2013 at 8:01 AM,
updated January 10, 2013

The Pulaski Skyway in Jersey City will be closed for two years beginning in 2014 NBC 4 New York reported this morning.

It will be "out of commission for New York-bound drivers beginning in February of next year, after Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium," the article reported.

The source of the information declined to be named in the article because officials still had not been briefed.

An official announcement is expected this afternoon in Newark about a $1 billion project.

"While rebuilding the Pulaski to last another 75 years will take several years, the part impacting New York-bound commuters will last about two years," the article stated.
