West of Gumboro along Whitesville Road between Lowes Road and Road 429.
Corrugated metal pipe culverts are corroding throughout the state. The Department has over 200 bridge-length corrugated metal pipe culvert locations, most of which are at or beyond their expected 30-year service life. This project is one location of the 20 locations included in the current Design-Build contract and it will help the Department meet its performance measures related to number of bridges in fair or poor condition.
Work shall consist of removal of the existing corrugated metal pipe and replacing it with two reinforced concrete pipes. Additional work will include the placement of upstream and downstream rip-rap aprons for scour (erosion) countermeasures and roadway replacement in the area of the pipes.
Construction to begin Early summer 2018 and will be completed in approximately 30 days.
This pipe replacement is part of a larger Design-Build project consisting of multiple locations.
