Woodside train overpass is crumbling
From CBS 2:
A Queens train overpass is crumbling to pieces and nearby workers and residents worry if something isn’t done to fix it it could cost someone their life.
Take a walk underneath an Amtrak span in Woodside and you might be stunned at what you’ll see. Crumbling concrete. Exposed steel. Holes the size of a child in the pillars that hold it all up.
And that’s not even the worst of it.
“Chunks of cement coming down, raining down off of this bridge. It’s very dangerous,” said Woodside resident John Moutopoulos.
“A lot of people are at risk, vehicles, children, adults,” resident Sehar Kaddough added.
“It’s scary that you never know what’s going to hit you in the head,” resident Eli Monahemi said.
Monahemi said the overpass at Northern Boulevard and Broadway could have killed him.
