IR Bridge Update

by Dave on February 9, 2009

The Department of Transportation (DelDOT) has announced that Skanska USA Civil Southeast Inc., the design-build contractor for the new $150-million Indian River Inlet Bridge, has completed its construction schedule and will resume Construction Advisory Group meetings this month to keep the public informed about the construction of the new bridge.

Skanska has developed an aggressive construction schedule with the goal of completing the bridge earlier than what was specified by DelDOT. While the design of the bridge will continue throughout this year, actual construction on the piling for the bridge foundations has already begun. The following is a construction timeline for the bridge:

-Design Bridge: 2008-2009
-Mobilization: Winter 2008-early 2009
-Concrete Piles: Winter 2008-Summer 2009
-Footings: Summer 2009-Fall 2009
-Substructure Abutments / Piers For Bridge Approaches: Summer 2009-Fall 2009
-Pylons: Summer 2009-Summer 2010
-Bridge Approach Spans: Winter 2009-Spring 2010
-Superstructure/Cable Stay: Spring 2010-Winter 2010
-Bridge Open to Traffic: Spring/Summer 2011
