Project Limits:

Approximately 250 feet northwest and southeast of the bridge along Whaleys Road.

Project Need:

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..

Project Overview:

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.
