Bridgework Update

Posted May 19th 2020

The two-year project to the high-level bridge on Avalon Boulevard (Ingram’s Thorofare Bridge) was half-completed before halting in early May for the summer. The project, which will continue into 2021, includes a deck resurfacing and superstructure repairs to the bridge. The eastbound lane had been blocked to permit work to progress on that side of the bridge, but now both lanes have been opened for the summer.

Underdeck contract work is continuing but is not expected to impact traffic. In the meantime, work will continue on smaller deck spall repairs on the westbound lane of the Ingram’s Thorofare Bridge, as well as more severe spalls on the Leonard’s and Graven’s Thorofare bridges. The repairs are anticipated to take three days to complete and traffic delays should be expected since the work will involve a moving lane closure with traffic alternating around the work area. Normal traffic patterns will resume at night and once the spall repairs have been completed.

Although the eastbound lane and shoulder bridge decking will be completed, the ride to motorists will seem rough, and this will continue until the Stage 2 deck pours next year are completed. Once the Stage 2 pours are completed, the entire deck surface will be diamond ground to create a smooth riding surface.

Work on Stage 2 portion of the project is scheduled to begin Sept. 14, when traffic will alternate through the eastbound lane while the westbound lane is under construction. The completion date for the entire project is June 18, 2021.
