DOVER, Del. (AP) The Delaware Department of Transportation has signed a nearly $150 million contract for construction of a new Indian River Inlet bridge.

Delaware Department of Transportation spokesman Darrel Cole said Virginia-based Skanska USA Civil Southeast Inc. had the lowest bid and quickest schedule for building the bridge.

Preliminary construction tasks are planned immediately. The bridge is scheduled to open in summer 2011.

Cole said designs for the bridge will be unveiled in September.

The department is still investigating faulty dirt embankments that altered the original plans for the bridge and forced the bridge to be redesigned.
