Project Limits:

Approximately 300 feet northeast and southwest of the bridge along Todds Chapel Road.

Project Need:

This bridge is three corrugated metal pipe arches. There is corrosion of the pipes at the waterline with 100% section loss at some locations. The pipes are structurally deficient and were selected by the Pontis Bridge Management System for work. It is ranked 92nd on the 2014 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List.

Project Overview:

This project involves the replacement of three large corrugated metal pipe arches with a precast concrete arch structure. The approach roadways and guardrail will be reconstructed as needed and riprap will be placed in the stream for slope protection. The work will be performed under a full road closure with a detour.

Project Timeline:

Design Phase:
Design work to be completed by fall of 2017.

Construction Phase:
Construction work to be completed by spring 2018.
