Walt Whitman Bridge 2018 Biennial Inspection


New Jersey/Pennsylvania<br style='line-height:2px'>Delaware River Port Authority

The Walt Whitman Bridge, opened to traffic in 1957, carries seven lanes of I-76 over the Delaware River connecting New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The signature bridge consists of a 2,000-foot suspension span and two 770-foot side spans.

HAKS is performing the 2018 biennial inspection of the Walt Whitman Bridge for the Delaware River Port Authority. The inspection is focused on accessing critical members and areas of the bridge and bridge approaches for hands-on inspection, including the main cables, suspended ropes, stiffening trusses, floor systems, deck, towers, anchorages, piers, and abutments. The project also includes inspection of sign gantries, the toll booth access tunnel, noise barriers, high-mast lighting, ground-level standpipe and miscellaneous electrical accessories.

Inspection over this major waterway and active railroads require coordination with both the U.S. Coast Guard and railroad owners.
