Wood for Rockland Ave. Bridge?

Are we in Vermont?

It seems that the Rockland Avenue bridge over the railroad tracks is being built with a wooden roadway. Aren’t there more durable materials avaliable to Metro North?

    Thank you for making me laugh out loud.
    Will it be a covered bridge? If so, the MHS Class of ’59 50th reunion should traverse it. (I almost said rumble across it, but in light of the recent Manor Park event, that would have been provocative.)
    BTW, Vermont is too green to use trees.

    Does anyone know when the brige work will be completed? I tried to highlight it in the “got a problem” map thing, but the text ballon would not take my input. . . . Seems like it’s been a loooonnngg time that the bridge has been under construction. . . Do they have a deadline?

    I fully support Redacted’s letter. We on the west side of the bridge are being punished for a crime we did not commit. Today I went to get prescriptions filled at the CVS in Larchmont. I could not use Richbell because it would lead me to the closed bridge on Rockland. I had to use Weaver Street. Unhappily, I hit the school traffic.
    what was normally a 3-5 minute ride home took about 20 minutes of creeping. The Via Appia in Rome was finished 2000 years ago, using Roman soldiers and without modern equipment, in less time than it is taking to repair a 100 foot long bridge. We are being bamboozled!

    Yes, the original deadline was March, I believe. Then they optimistically put up a sign saying it would be opened after May 27th. Now I see that date has been painted over! It is a huge inconvenience to so many of us!! Metro North, please tell us the end is in sight!
