DECK REHABILITATION PROJECT YOUR TOLL DOLLARS AT WORK!
August 3, 2022
The project includes the removal of the top 2” of the existing deck slabs and replacement with an Ultra-High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) overlay on the New Jersey-bound Span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Using hydro demolition, two inches of the old deck will be removed, the reinforcing mat repaired, transverse deck relief joints and expansion joints replace, and a UHPC deck overlay added.

Northbound (New Jersey Span) of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
- Phase 1 (Fall 2022): Northbound Span, two right lanes (Lanes 1 & 2), west of suspended bridge midpoint (“Delaware side”) – September 6, 2022 – November 22, 2022
- Phase 2 (Spring 2023): Northbound Span, two left lanes (Lanes 3 & 4), for the full length of the bridge – February 1, 2023 – May 25, 2023
- Phase 3 (Fall 2023): Northbound Span, two right lanes (Lanes 1 & 2), west of suspended bridge midpoint (“New Jersey side”) – September 5, 2023 – November 21, 2023
What to expect
Two lanes on the New Jersey-bound structure will be closed to traffic throughout each overlay placement period – with an additional third lane shut down during the overnight hours. The remaining lanes on the New Jersey-bound structure will be open to traffic.
To accommodate anticipated traffic volumes, a bypass lane will also be provided diverting traffic around the construction. This bypass lane will divert traffic to the exterior lane of the Delaware-bound structure and will accommodate traffic bound for the New Jersey Turnpike only. The traveling public should expect traffic congestion and delays heading into New Jersey.
Construction activity associated with this project will be suspended during the winter months and the peak summer travel season.
A detailed overview of the project as well as what the DRBA is doing to mitigate traffic during construction will be discussed. The presentation is approximately 25 minutes. If you are interested in attending, you will find a zoom link below.
