MTA's Mob Ties Reveals Vetting Problem

MTA Vetting Issues: New York Dirt Contracting's Mob Ties

On most weekdays in recent years, giant tractor-trailer and dump trucks loaded with tons of rocks, earth and sludge have been rumbling out of the Sunnyside, Queens, railyards in low gear and turning onto Northern Boulevard.

The trucks, sometimes 80 to 100 of them a day, have been carting away the dirt and debris spewed out by two enormous tunnel boring machines that have been cutting through bedrock and soil some 12 stories underground.
