BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) — The Bayonne Bridge is closing for the last time in 2017.

The bridge will close from 11:59 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Saturday due to ongoing repairs.

The bridge, which connects Bayonne with Staten Island, New York, was elevated to allow larger cargo ships to sail under it. The lower roadway was also removed.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey project has cost nearly $1.7 billion.
