for the following railway bridge project in the State of New York: 
Portageville Bridge Project, Towns of Portage and Genesee Falls, 
Livingston and Wyoming Counties, New York. The purpose of the Project 
is to address the existing deficiencies at the Portageville Bridge on 
the Southern Tier rail freight route across the Genesee River by 
providing a modern rail crossing of the Genesee River at its current 
location that is capable of carrying current industry standard freight 
rail loads, to the greatest degree possible meeting Federal Railroad 
Administration (FRA) Class 4 speeds, while reducing ongoing maintenance 
efforts and costs. The Project is needed in order for Norfolk Southern,
