HEADQUARTERS ROAD BRIDGE PROJECT
In 2018, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) filed a complaint (Case#: 2:18-cv-04508) in US District Court against PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration with regard to the Headquarters Bridge Project, stating the defendants have unlawfully determined that the bridge must be replaced with a new 2-lane concrete bridge. The DRN maintains that the existing bridge can be rehabilitated. PennDOT engineers have determined that the deterioration is too severe and 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.
