The bridge is adjacent to Hempstead Lake State Park and has a bridle path running alongside the eastern
side. A concrete barrier was needed to protect the joggers, equestrian riders and strollers while still maintaining the rustic character of the park.
Roman Stone built twenty eight (28) full section permanent concrete barriers with an Ashlar Stone pattern,
dark umber color, and two custom tapered transitions.
Ray Newcomb the Project Manager at Village Dock said that the barrier looks great, and was installed easily
due to the close tolerances and the attention to detail for the construction of the barrier.
Bayonne Bridge, Bayonne, NJ
Project Contractor: SKANSKA KIEWIT
Precast Manufacturer: Roman Stone Construction Company of Bay Shore, NY
The Bayonne Bridge is the fifth longest steel arch bridge in the world and was the longest in the world at the
time of its completion. It opened on November 15, 1931 and reached a height of 266’ at its tallest point. It also
spanned over a mile for a total of 5,780’.
Today, because the bridge is only 151 feet above the water, larger container ships often cannot cross under
it to reach the marine terminals. The current project is to raise the Bayonne Bridge structure to 215 feet to
allow larger ships to pass below it.
Roman Stone provided all of the precast temporary barrier needed to protect the workers. To expedite delivery we used two barges to deliver over 13,000’ of temporary barrier to the Bayonne Bridge in Bayonne, NJ.
