Today, on my commute to work over the Tappan Zee Bridge, I saw something that made me go "what?????": a rung ladder propped against the outer edge of the bridge. Not on the pavement - seemingly in thin air leading down to the Hudson. I mean, it has to be the Hudson because we were over water at that point. SO, my question is "how long do we think that ladder is?" Not to mention, "who's footing it to keep it steady?"
UTA: I've seen a number of these ladders lashed to the outside of the TZB. Clearly there is some purpose to them, but I'll be damned if I can figure it out!
