Project Limits:

350 feet East and West of bridge

Project Need

There is significant corrosion at the waterline with 100% section loss at several locations throughout the pipes. The existing pipes are structurally deficient and were selected by the Pontis Bridge Management System for work. This bridge was ranked 49th on the 2010 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List.

Project Overview:

This project involves the replacement of the existing corrugated metal pipes with prestressed concrete voided slabs on stub abutments. Additional work includes minor reconstruction for the approach roadway, installation of guardrail as needed, and placement of riprap in the stream to prevent scour. The work will be performed under a full road closure with detour.
