Rail Bridge May Get Repairs After FOX 29 Investigates Report

Posted: Updated:
LOGAN TWP., N.J. -

A South Jersey rail bridge may be getting repairs after FOX 29 investigates pressed for answers about its safety.

FOX 29 Investigates' Jeff Cole says state Senate President Steve Sweeney says he'll soon fire off a letter to Conrail demanding it repair the rail bridge.

Sweeney's pledge comes after FOX 29 Investigates showed him video of crumbling concrete and exposed metal rods.

On Monday, the feds joined Conrail in stating the bridge is safe but, as Jeff Cole reports, that's not enough for Sweeney.

You can watch the story in the video above.
