BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) - Motorists can use the Bayonne Bridge throughout the Easter weekend.

The bridge is expected to remain open from Friday until 9 a.m. Monday for holiday traffic.

The bridge is usually closed weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 8:30 p.m. until 5 a.m. for ongoing construction.

The bridge links Bayonne with Staten Island.

The $1.3 billion project to raise the roadway will give larger ships access to New York and New Jersey ports. The new bridge roadway will have wider lanes and a median.
