Deleware Forced to Redesign Unfinished Bridge Because of Consolidation Issues

Several things seem to be happening at the moment. DelDOT has three design-build teams that have been prequalified that will submit their proposals in May. After spending $8 million building the approach embankments, about 3/4 of that will need to be removed, or about 760,000 tons of material costing an estimated $2.6 million. The are also in the process of naming a consultant who will handle the claim process. The new bridge will be 2,600-ft long as opposed to 1,400-ft and is expected to cost approximately $150 million.
