Approximately 200 feet west and east of the bridge
The bridge consists of two corrugated metal pipes. Both metal pipes have significant corrosion at the waterline with 100% section loss at some locations. The bridge has been deemed structurally deficient by DelDOT's Bridge Management Section. Due to this, a project to replace this structure has been initiated.
This project involves the replacement of the two existing corrugated metal pipe arches with a precast concrete arch. Additional work includes the placement of riprap in the stream for scour protection, installation of guardrail as needed, and reconstruction of the approach roadway as necessary. Work will be performed under a full road closure with detour for vehicular traffic while pedestrian traffic will be maintained.
Design work to be completed no later than September 2019.
Construction work to be completed no later than May 2020.
