Another partial collapse of an almost century old railroad bridge in Syracuse has local officials looking for answers. 

The city of Syracuse closed part of South Geddes St. late Thursday after drivers noticed falling concrete from a railroad bridge. It follows a partial railroad bridge collapse on South Clinton St. last summer. The road reopened to traffic Friday afternoon.

Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh said he wanted the best and brightest people from the public and private sector in his new administration. Some of the diverse leaders on Walsh’s team have deep roots in the community.

At his swearing-in ceremony, Fire Chief Michael Monds, a 17-year veteran, said as a young man growing up on Syracuse’s south side, one of the poorest areas of the city, Monds never thought about becoming a firefighter.
