New York traffic can always be hectic for anyone, and we’re known now for our terrible highways being the worst in the country.
Sometimes we want the bridges and highways to be blown to smithereens to quell our road rage.
Well this summer, we’ll get our wish.
Now that the new Kosciuszko Bridge is almost ready to take on traffic, the state’s plan for the old one is to blow it the f*ck up.
And we hope they tell us the date, because we wanna catch that on tape.
Governor Cuomo, back at it again with his renovation crusade across New York, told CBS2 that in order to speed up the construction of the new Kosciuszko Bridge, the state will blow up the old one at some point this summer.
Cuomo claims the move will speed up the completion of the new bridge by seven to nine months.
Honestly, we think he wants to see it gone as well. The only downside is that the bridge taking its place still won’t be completely finished.
While it will be able to take on traffic starting in April, the final touches, such as a second bridge that will feature a pedestrian and bike path, won't be completely done until 2020.
According to Gothamist, the Brooklyn and Queens entrances of the bridge will be blown up, and then the middle section of the bridge will be hauled away by construction crews.
We're kinda let down. Well, then again, it’s not like Michael Bay is on standby. We’ll keep you posted with an official date.[via Gothamist] [Feature Image Courtesy UntappedCities]
