New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz wrote a letter to the Department of Transportation asking the agency to reconsider its construction of barriers along the bridge to prevent tragedies. Diaz cited a 2012 accident along the Bronx River Parkway that caused a minivan to flip over the barriers, killing seven people.

The MTA told News 12 in a statement that the improvement project along the Henry Hudson Bridge meets all national and New York State guidelines and is safe.
