I wonder why they are waiting until 2025 to start construction.

A little surprised that this is the first I'm hearing about a replacement of the Newark Bay Bridge, but I guess its still at least 5 years before they start that work, so maybe not.

It's been in their long term plans for a while. They want to make the NBHCE 3 lanes each direction between the mainline and 14C, plus add an aux lane eastbound to allow traffic exiting at 14A to have a place to queue up without spilling onto the main road. The bridge will need to be replaced to make that a reality.

Well, naturally. Though they could twin it if they thought it was more cost effective. I'm guessing not.

I imagine that they decided that the cost to build a second bridge and then rehab the original was higher than just building a new bridge that handles both directions of traffic.

Then again, recent past experience of rehabbing bridges in the region haven't worked out as cost-effectively as first thought.

Or building 1 new and then replacing existing. I don't know if they've decided on the final structural design.

I see New York is used here on I-78 west for I-95 and The Turnpike Mainline. Considering you just left New York it seems odd to use it coming from this direction.
