ROAD & BRIDGE UPDATES:

HEADQUARTERS ROAD BRIDGE UPDATE
On October 22, 2018, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) filed a complaint (Case#: 2:18-cv-04508) in US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania challenging PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) issuance of a Categorical Exclusion (CE) from an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or Environmental Assessment (EI) with regard to the Headquarters Bridge Project, which states the defendants have unlawfully determined that the Bridge must be destroyed and replaced with a new 2-lane concrete structure. The complaint can be found on the DRN website or the US District Court for the Eastern District of PA website. The FHWA had granted PennDOT the CE for Headquarters Road Bridge in Sept., enabling PennDOT to move forward with the design in accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement. PennDOT's explanation of a CE can be found on the PennDOT website.

The DRN maintains that the bridge can be rehabilitated. PennDOT engineers and Transportation Secretary Richards have determined that rehabilitation is not an option due to the deterioration of its structural integrity. PennDOT states that there are two options: 1) Construct a new two-lane bridge, which PennDOT would retain ownership and responsibility. 2) Construct a new one-lane bridge, which would require Tinicum Township taxpayers to take ownership and responsibility.
