Highway Design Engineer Matt Taylor recently crunched some numbers and found that about 2,060,000 people need to enter and exit Manhattan every weekday. With 84% of those 2 million commuters taking some form of public transit, he decided to see what infrastructure Manhattan would need in order to support them if they all drove cars instead. It's an interesting analysis with a conclusion that would warrant the addition of 48 additional bridges across the Hudson and East Rivers.
