Bayonne approves gas line deal

BAYONNE AND BEYOND — As other communities elsewhere in Hudson County mount opposition to the proposed Spectra gas line through Jersey City and Bayonne, the Bayonne City Council voted on June 20 to approve an agreement that would pave the way for construction. City officials said that discussions with Spectra had produced modifications in the plan and will result in more than $2.3 million in annual revenues to the city as well as other perks. Spectra representatives said the pipeline would also have a positive impact for local companies through whose properties the pipeline would travel.
The biggest change was the moving of the proposed pipeline route out of residential areas, placing the west to east route under the Kill Van Kull instead at the southern most tip of Bayonne near Staten Island.
