Railroad Company To Remove More Of Bridge Sidewall That Fell

Railroad company plans to remove more of the sidewall on the bridge that has already partially collapsed.

The New York Susquehanna & Western Railroad (NYSW) plans to remove remaining concrete sidewalls on the railroad viaduct that had a  portion of a sidewall fall off last week. South Clinton Street will remain closed until that work is completed. NYSW said it removed a third section of sidewall last week and plans to remove 17 remaining sections.  The sidewalls are not load-bearing. 

Engineers for the railroad are beginning to inspect the remaining bridge structures this week. Inspections will be completed before train service resumes. The city says that previous inspection reports of the bridge should be released to the public...soon.
