ROEBLING BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION SEPT. 14 INFORMATIONAL MEETING

ROEBLING BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION SEPT. 14 INFORMATIONAL MEETING

 

The National Historic Landmark Roebling Bridge (Roebling’s Delaware Aqueduct) will undergo significant maintenance work beginning the week of September 27, 2016. The National Park Service at Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River (NPS), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), invite you to attend an informational meeting about this project.

The meeting will be held on September 14, 2016 at the Lackawaxen Township Building located at 169 Urban Road Hawley, PA 18428 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Representatives from NPS and FHWA will be present to answer questions about the project, road closures, detour routes and the construction schedule in an open house format throughout the evening.

The repairs being made to Roebling Bridge include expansion joint replacement, sealing of concrete deck, resurfacing of asphalt pavement, drainage improvements, as well as icebreaker timbers and stone masonry repairs. Though the structure will be open Friday through Sunday, many of these repair activities will require weekday closure of the bridge to vehicular traffic. Pedestrian access across the bridge will be maintained. Parking in NPS parking lots will be affected during repairs.

Information about road closures and detour routes associated with the project can also be found at https://www.nps.gov/upde/planyourvisit/index.htm.
