Crews are preparing the railway bridge along South Clinton Street in Syracuse for some repair work after two sidewalls fell last week.
The New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway Corporation plans to remove and replace 17 remaining sidewall sections. The decision was made after engineers inspected the structure.
A crane will begin the sidewall removals Wednesday.
Sections north of West Onondaga Street will be taken down first. The work is expected to continue through Sunday, and will close some roads in the area.
The elevated railway was built back in the 1930s, just like other bridge structures in the city.
Inspections on those are continuing and are expected to be completed this week.
Train traffic is still being detoured.
