200 feet north and south of the bridge
The existing 3 - corrugated metal pipes were structurally deficient and were selected by the Pontis Bridge Management System for work. There was corrosion at the waterline with 100% section loss at some locations. This bridge was ranked 92nd on the 2013 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List.
This project involved the replacement of large corrugated metal pipes with multiple cells of reinforced concrete pipes. The approach roadways were reconstructed as needed and riprap was placed in the streams for scour protection. The work was performed under full road closures with a detour.
Design work completed March 1, 2014.
Construction work completed November 2014.
This bridge was part of the federally funded 4-bridge Kent County Pipe Replacements project. The four bridges are: 2-131A, 2-140A, 2-160A, and 2-286A.
