Skipping about a mile, the Bayonne Bridge crosses the Kill Van Kull from Bayonne to Staten Island. At the state line, it changes designation from NJ 440 to NY 440. Construction is currently in progress to raise the roadway so that tall ships can pass under the bridge. At this stage, half of the new roadway is open to traffic. The bridge is temporarily narrowed down to two lanes.
