Kill Van Kull separates the southern shore of the city of Bayonne from Staten Island and connects the Upper Bay of New York Harbor with Newark Bay and Arthur Kill. Kill Van Kull is a major channel for petroleum and bulk cargo in New York Harbor, and has extensive through traffic and large factories on its shores.
A Federal project provides for a 45-foot dredged channel leading through Kill Van Kull and a 35-foot dredged channel north of Shooters Island to Arthur Kill. The dredged channel south of Shooters Island has a project depth of 30 feet.
The Bayonne Bridge, a fixed span with a minimum clearance of 138 feet over the channel (151 feet centerline), crosses Kill Van Kull from just east of Bergen Point, the southwestern end of the city of Bayonne, and connects with Staten Island.
