No. 2 (tie) U.S. Route 1/9 over Hackensack River (Pulaski Skyway), South Kearny/Jersey City, NJ
The Skyway’s other 550-foot river crossing will also benefit from the $1 billion rehab, which includes a deck replacement, repairs to its concrete and steel supports, and an enhanced ability to handle seismic events. The repairs will close the Skyway to northbound traffic for 24 months starting in 2014, but southbound traffic will remain on the bridge during construction.
