Rebuilding a steel el or rolling in a new street overpass is relatively easy. The Manhasset Viaduct was also replaced beam by beam. The concrete structures in Valley Stream, Lynbrook, and Rockville Center were all extensively repaired in the 1980's.

What I am worried about is learning of this tree-root situation. That could make the entire embankment for the 3 miles entirely useless. It may have to be all carted off and replaced with new fill, or make the whole thing an el. If so, forget the whole thing.
