BROOKLYN - Continued construction on I-278 has many drivers steaming mad, and there is no immediate end in sight.

Crawling along the BQE in bumper-to-bumper traffic, commuters complained enough is enough Thursday. The DOT says it is in the middle of two construction projects in the area. Work is also being done on the Gowanus Expressway. Both expressways are part of I-278.

The DOT expects to complete the $340 million project in 10 years.
