Its a $100 million MTA project shrouded in secrecy, with 18 of them for tunnels and bridges. So what are they exactly?
The MTAs man in charge of the bridges and tunnels, Cedrick Fulton, dodged Carlins questions Wednesday.
I said no comment, he said.
Some MTA board members, including New York City Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg, say they know too little about the towers even with half the money already spent and some of the towers already up.
A lot of the board members felt they didnt have all the details they would have wanted, myself included, she said.
Its a bit mind-boggling that the MTA is approving $100 million for what appears to us to be big, decorative pylons, says John Kaehny, the leader of the watchdog group Reinvent Albany. What were asking for is transparency from the MTA.
CBS2 demanded answers from MTA Chairman Joe Lhota.
Carlin: Some of your own board members say they dont know the specifics.
Lhota: The base of these new pieces that are going up include whatever fiber optics are necessary for those Homeland Security items.
In other words, anti-terror technology. Could that one day include facial recognition? We dont know and Lhota wont say.
Im not at liberty to discuss that, he told Carlin.
So as more of these expensive towers rise, the mystery is tucked away inside them.
