INFORMATION

Project Limits:

Approximately 200 feet west and east of the bridge along Deer Run Road.

Project Need:

Bridge 3-461 is located east of Selbyville in Sussex County, Delaware. The existing structure consists of three 6 foot diameter corrugated metal pipes with a total length of approximately 60 feet. The replacement of Bridge 3-461 has been proposed due to significant corrosion found during routine bridge inspections and the subsequent diminishing structural integrity of the structure. The bridge has a current sufficiency rating of 69.8.

Project Overview:

The scope of the proposed project is to replace the existing corrugated metal pipes with three 7 foot reinforced concrete pipes at approximately 72 feet in length. Additional improvements include minor approach roadway work and placing rip-rap in the stream for scour protection. Pipe replacement will be performed under a full road closure with a posted detour.
