Governor Cuomo has unveiled a plan to remake New York City’s transportation infrastructure by eliminating tollbooths and installing advanced toll-collecting sensors that will diminish New York City traffic congestion and promote security. The New York Crossing Project, as its been dubbed by the Governor’s office, will also focus on advancing public art by equipping bridges citywide with LED lighting displays that will light up like the crown of the Empire State Building. The project seeks to remake the city’s infrastructure for the 21st century, and that includes through enacting advanced methods of toll collecting. Tollbooths at the Henry Hudson Bridge, Whitestone Bridge, Throgs Neck Bridge, RFK Triborough Bridge, Queens Midtown Tunnel, Hugh L. Carey Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge, and Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge will be removed and replaced with sensors and cameras suspended over roadways that will automatically charge vehicles with E-Z Pass.
