Project Limits:

110 feet north and south of the bridge

Project Need:

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 percent section loss at some locations. The bridge is ranked 19th on the 2016 DelDOT Bridge Deficiency List (out of 1625 bridges).

Project Overview:

Replacing two corrugated metal pipes with reinforced concrete pipes. 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.

Project Timeline

Design Phase:
