Thank you for answering the question and providing the info that recent flooding in the area had caused the abutment to fail. Your photo really underscores the extent of the damage. It looked like welders were cutting the bridge apart when I passed by on the Thruway on Saturday but at highway speed it was hard to know for sure.


FYI, they were able to save half the railroad bridge, so the other half is now a relatively lightweight road vehicle bridge.
