Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line

Replacing the bridges before putting them back into service would make far more sense than taking a chance that it would need to be done after service is restored and passenger service would be disrupted. Many bridges newer than those on the Rockaway branch have been replaced, so quite possibly some would be due for replacement anyway, especially considering that almost no maintenance has been performed on those bridges apart from whatever may have been necessary to keep them from collapsing. And as others have mentioned, some of those bridges actually have trees growing in them, which can't be good for them.
