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

What you're talking about is in the areas compromised and those can be repaired and new concrete poured and new steel welded in. If not pre built bridges can be assembled off site and delivered and install, railway bridges over streets aren't very complicated. Once again you're talking about things that are obvious. What I'm trying to state is that the task of tree removal is not difficult since in the rebuilding of the roadbed they have to get down to the subsoil where the roots are and remove them anyway. In no way, shape, or form did I ever imply that they simple cut the tree, pour ballast and lay rail. Once again DOT must do some time of inspections or basic maintenance, to prove that go on google earth. Zoom in to street level and go to the bridge over Atlantic Avenue and look at the concrete underneath the bridge then go to 97th Avenue and go under the bridge and you'll see signs of new paint and once again very little concrete cracking.
