BROOKLYN — Two construction workers were injured in a 15-foot fall on the Verrazano Bridge on Thursday morning, officials said.
The two men were carrying a wooden board on the upper roadway around 7:35 a.m., a spokesman for the MTA said. The two men were thrown from the upper level and fell onto a protective barrier when a passing car hit the board.
Both men were transported to Lutheran Hospital, officials said. One of the men broke his arm in the fall. The other man was treated for injuries to his neck and back.
Both men work for Tutor Perini. The company was awarded a $235.7 million contract in 2012 to replace the original concrete deck on the upper level with a steel deck.
