JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A bridge into Jersey City that thousands of motorists are likely to use during the upcoming two-year Pulaski Skyway closure will still be raised to allow ships through - just not as often.

The state Department of Transportation tells the Jersey Journal (https://bit.ly/1h6Ie2T) that the bridge over the Hackensack River, known variously as the Lincoln Highway Bridge, Communipaw Avenue Bridge or the Shawn Carson and Robert Nguyen Memorial Bridge, will still open for large vessels that are dependent on the tides.

But DOT spokesman Stephen Schapiro says it won’t open for smaller boats during morning and evening commuting hours. Normally the bridge opens on demand.

The Pulaski Skyway’s Manhattan-bound lanes are scheduled close April 12 for two years to enable significant work on the 81-year-old span.
