Bayonne Bridge Navigational Clearance Program

SPR represented the Port Authority of NY & NJ with regard to the environmental review and permitting of this project, which will raise the Bayonne Bridge to accommodate larger container vessels. The environmental reviews were undertaken pursuant to NEPA, SEQRA and CEQR, as well as Section 106 of the NHPA, , and obtained permits from the US Coast Guard, NYSDEC, NYSDOT, and others. The Firm successfully defended the litigation challenging the project’s environmental review in federal court.
