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.READ MORE: Gunman At Large After 1 Employee Killed, 2 Others Wounded In Shooting At West Hempstead Stop & Shop
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.READ MORE: Jersey City Schools Staying All Remote Until September
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.MORE NEWS: De Blasio Unveils 'Safe Summer NYC' Plan To End Gun Violence
