300 feet north and south of the bridge
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 currently has a 70.1 sufficiency rating and is ranked 25th on the 2013 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List.
The project involves the placement of a structural concrete liner on the interior of the existing pipes. Additional work includes road resurfacing as needed, installation of wooden barrier over the structure, and placement of riprap in the stream to prevent scour. The work will be performed with no disruption to traffic.
Design work to be completed no later than June 2017.
Construction work to be completed no later than Spring 2018.
