Great Lakes Pilotage Advisory Committee
The Great Lakes Pilotage Advisory Committee (GLPAC) will meet on February 11, 2013, in Cleveland, Ohio. The meeting will be open to the public.
Availability of Draft Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Modification of the Bayonne Bridge Across the Kill Van Kull Between Bayonne, Hudson County, NJ and Staten Island, Richmond County, NY
This notice extends the public comment period on a Draft Environmental Assessment (Draft EA) which examines the reasonably foreseeable environmental impacts and socio-economic impacts of the proposed modification of the historic Bayonne Bridge across the Kill Van Kull between Bayonne, New Jersey and Staten Island, New York. This notice also announces a third public meeting, in Newark, NJ, on this Draft EA. Because the Bayonne Bridge is a structure over navigable waters of the United States, the proposed bridge modification would require a Coast Guard Bridge Permit Amendment. This notice provides information on how to participate in the public comment process for the Draft EA, which includes an opportunity to submit oral or written comments at three public meetings to consider an application by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ) for Coast Guard approval of the modification to the Bayonne Bridge across the Kill Van Kull.
