"A staggering number of the 89 city bridges and crossings used by Amtrak trains have parts that are in crumbling condition, The Post has learned.
At least 46 percent of the spans -- some crossing over waterways like the Bronx River or such thoroughfares as Dyckman Street -- have important components rated in "poor" or worse condition, inspection reports show.
And the grades don't fare much better for bridges around the state. About 44 percent have poor or worse ratings, with some in Albany having completely ineffective waterproofing and drainage."
