Mysterious metal towers are popping up at local tunnels, and soon they’ll start appearing at bridges, too. But even people on the MTA board in charge of the towers can’t say why they’re being used or what’s in them, CBS2’s Dave Carlin reports.

The 30-feet-tall MTA Gateway Towers are a part of Gov Andrew Cuomo’s $100 million vision to redesign the MTA’s bridges and tunnels in the city.But not everyone knows the purpose of these towers, including folks on the MTA board.
Residents suspect there is much more going on in the towers than meets the eye and wonder if they’ll ever really know what’s going on inside of them.But the individuals in charge are staying tight-lipped about what the towers actually do.
The question now is what these new surveillance devices will be used for, and why does the government want to keep people in the dark,Americans are not aware of the degree to which the government is watching them and infringing on their rights.
