STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A ride along the Brooklyn-bound Staten Island Expressway between Bradley Avenue and Todt Hill Road has always seemed like driving through molasses, between the uphill crawl and the clog of cars coming and going on poorly placed exit and entrance ramps.
Now it feels like driving through molasses that's stuck to a washboard.
A long line of badly patched potholes forms a tire-width strip along the right and middle lanes, roughly between exits 11 and 12.
Stronger Penalties Proposed For Work Zone Violators
New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan last Wednesday joined with state Senator Diane Savino and Assemblymember Michael Cusick to announce efforts to strengthen state laws protecting crews in active work zones, marking the 10th annual National Work Zone Awareness Week.
