Speculation? How? They're built like every other LIRR bridge at the time and they're still standing! The bridges are still standing even though they've been left to the elements! Also those bridges do get inspected, because the city will be held liable for any collapse of the bridge. They might not be able to handle railcars at the moment, but with sufficient repairs they can.

Roadways handle the same stresses as railway bridges, constant stresses from above, same elements, weight, frequency is more. While they might not weigh as much as a car, the roadway bridge handles a lot more traffic over its lifespan than the railway bridge.That is a fact you cannot dispute.
