THEREFORE BE IT RECOGNIZED, upon the passing ofthis resolution that the Committee on Transportation and Public Way organize said hearings, as well as collaborate with the CDOT on keeping up to date reporting on the city's viaducts and utilize the Federal Railroad Administration Bridge Inspection Reporting system to collect the data needed to assess the state of and safety of our city's viaducts.
