Design-Build Statewide Pipe Replacement for BR 3-576 on Whitesville Road

Project Limits:

West of Gumboro along Whitesville Road between Lowes Road and Road 429.

Project Need

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.

Project Overview:

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.

Project Timeline:

Design Phase:

March 2018

Construction Phase:

Construction to begin Early summer 2018 and will be completed in approximately 30 days.

Additional Information:

This pipe replacement is part of a larger Design-Build project consisting of multiple locations.
