SR 0611 Bridge Repalcement

The SR 0611 Bridge was severely deteriorated and deemed structurally deficient, and the required replacement bridge involved complex environmental analysis. Many sensitive features were present around the bridge including a county park, a scenic highway, the Delaware Canal State Park, an aqueduct bridge carrying the Delaware Canal over Fry’s Run, and a stone-arch bridge listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

RETTEW replaced the existing two-span bridge with a single-span bridge. Our design eliminated a center pier in the stream, which not only obstructed stream flow but was expensive to rebuild. Our expert team prepared field surveys; preliminary engineering design including roadway plans; right-of-way requirements; maintenance and protection of traffic plans involving seven stages of traffic control; and bridge type, size, and location plans. We completed the project with the least disturbance possible to the park and the adjacent property, while creating a safe alternate route that permitted efficient traffic flow.
