Then let the Manhattan "teabaggers" start with the Tappan Zee bridge:

The Tappan Zee Is Falling Down

Why is New York taking so long to replace a vital bridge?

NICOLE GELINAS
Spring 2011

The state built the Tappan Zee Bridge on the cheap, which has contributed to
its deterioration.

Last October, more than a year into his $787 billion stimulus program,
President Obama concluded in a New York Times Magazine interview that “there’s
no such thing as shovel-ready projects.” To learn why America can’t build
stuff quickly (or even slowly), Obama should take a rush-hour ride over the
Tappan Zee Bridge, which connects Rockland and Westchester Counties over the
Hudson River, just north of New York City.

The Tappan Zee exemplifies the state of America’s infrastructure in 2011. We
rely on it more than ever: each year, 51 million cars, trucks, and buses
traverse the seven-lane “Tap,” as locals call it. More people commute over
it than through the Lincoln or the Holland Tunnel, both of which cross the
river to the south. Yet New York outgrew the bridge decades ago, with today’s
traffic far exceeding the structure’s designed capacity. Worse, the Tappan
Zee is a disaster in slow motion. Absent ceaseless repairs and ever-vigilant
inspectors, it could collapse. Even short of such a disaster, the bridge’s
deterioration poses a significant risk to the regional economy: if state
officials ever felt that they were losing the battle against the Tap’s
decay, they would shut it immediately, diverting traffic to already-clogged
arteries to the south and preventing thousands of the downstate region’s
workers and customers from getting to their destinations. <snip>
