      SpiKen, everything after the first two paragraphs of your comment makes little to no sense and is complete gibberish.

      In regards to using the rail bridge as a pedestrian crossing, have you read the technical report regarding the condition of the bridges? Both bridges have areas of corrosion where up to 100% of the material is affected. Many major structural components are 50-75% corroded. In order to have pedestrians use the rail bridge, they would have to spend a significant amount of money to reconfigure a "broken" bridge to accommodate pedestrian traffic safely. Even if they did that, with such extensive structural decay, how safe will it be to regularly cycle the bridge between its raised, and lowered configurations which places a variety of different tensile and compression forces on the bridge's various joints and members?
