You can add the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to the list of items “made in China.”

The MTA outsourced a $253 million renovation project to China for work on the steel span.

The move has sparked protests from American steel-workers who say they could do the job.

The MTA insists there’s not a steel plant in America that can produce the type of high-tech steel plate it wants.
