Here's the latest on the 3rd Street Bridge

Media Borough, Delaware County, Broomall Lake CC and Schnabel Engineering were on a call today to discuss the next steps for 3rd Street Bridge.  From what I understand things went smoothly and the project is progressing, though there are some items of importance to note:

  1. The breach of the dam/bridge is expected to happen sometime in August/September of 2016.  
  2. Upon breach, the area will be off limits to pedestrian traffic for a long as 18 months.
  3. The earliest the repair work can begin is March of 2018
  4. PECO has indicated that the utilities lines (electric, gas, phone, etc.) will be rerouted and not included under the new structure.
