FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – OCTOBER 19th, 2011

TRANSPORTATION FOR AMERICA IDENTIFIES 778 DEFICIENT BRIDGES IN THE NEW YORK AREA, 4 ON STATEN ISLAND

In a report released by Transportation for America, The Fix We're In For: The State of Our Nation's Busiest Bridges, the organization identified 778 deficient bridges within the New York area. Please see report attached to this email. Of the 778 bridges identified, 4 structurally deficient bridges were identified on Staten Island. The 4 structurally deficient bridges are:

The north ramp that runs along the side of the Richmond County Ballpark.
Southbound Hylan Boulevard bridge that crosses Interstate 278 (SIE).
Northbound Hylan Boulevard bridge that crosses Interstate 278 (SIE).
Arthur Kill Road Bridge that crosses Arthur Kill stream.
According to Transportation For America, " A bridge that has been rated structurally deficient needs to be repaired or monitored. A structurally deficient bridge is not necessarily unsafe, but it does require significant maintenance, rehabilitation or replacement."

All bridges identified on Staten Island can be found here:

The Staten Island Traffic Safety Council is asking that federal, state and city officials monitor these identified bridges closely and take measures to remove their deficient status.



If these bridges are neglected, they will undoubtedly become hazardous.



The Staten Island Traffic Safety Council (SITSC) is a public advocacy group created to address traffic safety concerns in Staten Island.
