Truck traffic pollutes air for Mott Haven residents

THE BRONX - Truck traffic in Mott Haven has residents living near the Willis Avenue Bridge looking for a breath of fresh air.

The Willis Avenue tenants complain that air and noise pollution caused by trucks is out of hand. They say they can't even open their windows without smelling exhaust and that the vehicles have a tendency to idle outside their homes.

Neighbors admit it's a difficult problem to fix, but say they're still hoping something can be done to ease the congestion.
