200 feet north and south of the bridge
The existing 2 - reinforced concrete pipes are structurally deficient and were selected by the Pontis Bridge Management System for work. There is corrosion at the waterline with 100% section loss at some locations. This bridge was ranked 92nd on the 2013 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List.
This project involves the replacement of large corrugated metal pipes with multiple cells of reinforced concrete pipes. The approach roadways will be reconstructed as needed and riprap will be placed in the streams for scour protection. The work will be performed under full road closures with a detour.
Design work completed May 2016.
Construction work will be completed Summer 2016.
