NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Motorists on the The RFK/Triborough Bridge are mystified — constantly seeing road work and yet nothing to show for it.

According to an analysis in the New York Post, one-fifth of the MTA’s bridges or their approaches are “structurally deficient” — with the RFK/Triborough getting the worst rating.

One driver who spoke with 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg compared his work commute to “rattling around like a worm in a tin can going fishing.”

“The approach road to the bridge is horrible, it’s like pothole heaven. I’ve had my other car, I had to have suspension work totally done on it. It’s like you’re driving like you’re drunk trying to avoid these things,” he said.

Though the toll each way on the bridge costs $6.50, many drivers complained that the conditions are still bad despite all the construction work.

“I see everyday, some nights they’re working late night, but I still see the same thing. I don’t know what’s going on,” one man said.

“It [does] not make sense anything — like $6.50 and it’s not good facilities,” he said, “where’s the money going?”

In response, the MTA said that it was doing all it can to make improvements to its bridges.
