Approximately 250 feet northwest and southeast of the bridge along Whaleys Road.
Bridge 3-341 is located east of Laurel in Sussex County, Delaware. The existing structure consists of three 6 foot corrugated metal pipes with a total length of approximately 50 feet. The replacement of Bridge 3-341 has been proposed due to significant corrosion found during routine bridge inspections and the subsequent diminishing structural integrity of the structure..
The scope of the proposed project is to replace the existing corrugated metal pipes with three 6 foot diameter reinforced concrete pipes at approximately 60 feet in length. Additional improvements shall include minor approach roadway work and placing rip-rap in the stream for scour protection. The pipe replacement shall be performed under a full road closure with a posted detour.
Design work was completed in Spring 2014.
Construction work was completed in Fall 2014.
