Emergency Rehabilitation of
Sussex County Bridge E-04
Carrying CR-631 (a.k.a. Franklin Avenue)

Completion of the Emergency Rehabilitation of Sussex County Bridge E-04 has been delayed due to the NJDEP permit application review period.

It is anticipated that the permit will be received by the end of January and that the project can be advertised for bids in February 2016.

Based on the anticipated award date of April 13, 2016, the anticipated road closure date has been modified accordingly.

Additionally, the construction duration has lengthened due to an increase in the initial project scope to address:

  • Footing Scour and Undermining: According to the 2015 National Bridge Inspection System (NBIS) report, Bridge E-04 is a scour critical bridge and a priority repair letter has been issued for the bridge footings which are partially undermined. The Division is recommending the project include remediation of the undermined footings thereby eliminating any long-term serviceability issues related to this deficiency.
  • Roadway Safety: Safety enhancements including a new bridge railing and pylon system on the upstream fascia and upgrades to the existing railing system on the downstream fascia as well as upgraded guide rail and guide rail transitions to the bridge. This work brings the bridge and approaches into conformance with current roadside safety standards.
