I presume you are referring to the High Line, and as of right now, there are not necessarily trains running over the High Line now, is there? And since it has not been inspected as it would if trains were planned to run over it again, who knows what shape the steel is in???

when we replace defective sections it will be ready

How many defective sections, if looking at the viaduct today, would an inspector find (or need to find) before saying "complete new structure necessary"?? I bet it would need to be renewed.

Let's make a long story short, the line IS NOT being reopened in any of our lifetimes, and any hope for such is nothing more than a railfan dream. It's not gonna happen in our lifetime!! We can discuss why it should/shouldn't until we are ready to pass out, why it is needed/not needed until we pass out, and how much it will/won't cost until we pass out, and it still will not be reopened to rail traffic in our lifetimes. We really should give this topic a rest.
