SEAFORD, Del. (AP) The Delaware Department of Transportation said a bridge near Seaford that collapsed recently in the aftermath of a nor’easter will be replaced.
Officials said Nov. 24 that the replacement bridge on Old Furnace Road, which is expected to cost approximately $800,000, will be built within the next three months. The agency is expediting its contracting and permitting process.
The new bridge will be a 60-ft. (18.3 m) single span. The estimated cost includes design, utility relocation and construction.
The old bridge failed when waterlogged soil overwhelmed two large corrugated metal pipes that ran underneath the road.
