The applicant, Delaware River and Bay Authority, has applied for a Department of the Army permit for a proposed project to upgrade existing bridge protection system and provide added protection to the existing bridge piers from potential ship collisions. The project is located in the Delaware River adjacent to the existing bridge piers supporting the center span of the Delaware Memorial Bridge between New Castle County, Delaware and Salem County, New Jersey. The proposed temporary access trestle is solely to be utilized to support the construction of the pier protection project. The trestle configuration provides daily access for crew and inspection staff, allows for transferring material and equipment onto barges for shuttling to the project site, and provides a safe staging location for mooring barges.
