A deal was finalized between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and a team of private companies to replace and demolish the existing Goethals Bridge connecting Staten Island and New Jersey. The team, named the NYNJ Link Partnership, is comprised of Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets Inc., Kiewit Development and Infrastructure, Weeks Marine, and Massman Construction. This is the Port Authority’s first public-private partnership and will be financed through tax-exempt bonds, loans, and developer contributions. The NYNJ Link Partnership is responsible for designing, building, financing, and maintaining the bridge. The replacement  bridge will improve the existing bridge by having 6 12-foot wide lanes, interior and exterior shoulders, a pedestrian and bike path, and a lane to be developed for buses, HOV, or light rail in the future.
