A Federal Consistency Certification has been submitted to the Delaware Coastal Management Program (DCMP) for the following: DelDOT BR 3-164 Bridge Project (2023.0022)

The Delaware Department of Transportation proposes to utilize a U.S. Coast Guard bridge permit for the replacement of bridge BR 3-164, which carries SR36 (Cedar Beach Road) over Cedar Creek in Slaughter Beach, Sussex County, Delaware. The proposed project will include demolition of the existing structure and substructures; installation of new piers, abutments, and fenders; placement of riprap for protection of the Cedar Creek canal bed; construction of a new control house; utility relocation; construction of new flanking bridge spans; construction of a new movable bascule span and associated structural elements; and roadway approach reconstruction. The navigational channel of the Cedar Creek canal will generally remain open for boat traffic during construction; however, temporary closures of the navigational channel will be required. The proposed activity is subject to review for consistency under the policies of the DCMP.
