U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer says Syracuse residents have a right to know if the bridges they walk and drive their cars under are safe. Schumer is calling the Federal Railroad Agency to release full annual bridge inspection reports immediately, as well as audits, verification, or other review conducted on those reports. The senator says it's unacceptable that after two weeks, city residents and officials cannot obtain complete safety information about the bridge that recently collapsed. The Senate Minority Leader says the FRA should also be working side-by-side with city officials to ensure that service does not resume until complete safety is assured.
