Lincoln tunnel tiles: Trump can sometimes veer from the script. This can prove to be problematic even though it is often a popular tactic with his supporters. He told National Governors Association that they should expect something big from him regarding infrastructure in his remarks at Monday’s Winter Meeting at the White House.
Trump is not to blame for his thoughts about falling tiles. CBS News 60 Minutes presented a memorable Infrastructure Report in November 2014. It highlighted Pittsburgh’s crumbling Greenfield Bridge. To prevent falling debris from hitting the roadways below, a temporary solution was to build a bridge underneath the bridge. However, he should have his staff investigate the tunnels’ “falling tiles” before citing them.
No one has been hurt by falling tiles because they have not fallen — workers are replacing them as part of an infrastructure project for repair of the tunnel from Hurricane Sandy damage,” Beth DeFalco, a spokeswoman for MTA [ Metropolitan Transportation Authority], stated in an email.
The Port Authority, which runs the Lincoln Tunnel, stated in a statement that the tile structures within the tubes of the Lincoln Tunnel are in good condition and have been regularly inspected. There have been no incidents reported involving falling tiles in the past 12 months.
It is unnecessary to mention false examples of infrastructure despair when thousands upon thousands of American bridges are either structurally deficient or functionally outdated.
