Bridge 3-627 is located approximately 3 miles southwest of the town of Ellendale in Sussex County, Delaware.
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.
The scope of the proposed project is to replace the existing pipes with two 90-inch circular reinforced concrete pipes that are 72 feet in length with sacked riprap headwalls installed at the culvert inlet and outlet openings.
Design work to be completed September 2018
Construction to begin the middle of fall 2018 and will be completed in approximately 28 days.
This pipe replacement is part of a larger Design-Build project consisting of multiple locations.
