110 feet west and east of the bridge
The existing pipes at the bridge are structurally deficient (NBI=4) and were selected by the Pontis Bridge Management System for work. There is corrosion at the waterline with 100% section loss at some locations. The existing bridge is ranked 36th on the 2016 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List (out of 1625 bridges).
Replacement of two corrugated metal pipes with reinforced concrete pipes and possible realignment of the stream. The approach roadway will be reconstructed, guardrail will be installed as needed, and rip rap will be placed in the stream for scour protection. The work will be performed under a full road closure with a detour.
Design work to be completed no later than February 2018
Construction work to be completed Fall 2018
This project will require a detour.
