RVE was retained by Cape May County to provide Construction Management and Inspection services on the replacement of Spans 1 through 7 of the Ocean Drive over Townsends Inlet Bridge. The bridge was closed for reconstruction on September 17, 2018 and construction is anticipated to be completed and the bridge reopened by Memorial Day 2019. This challenging project removes six of the existing piers and replaces them with three new pile supporter piers. The existing South Abutment is also being completely reconstructed.
RVE’s drone footage provides a better idea of what is involved in a project of this magnitude.
The project was recently featured in some detail in a local news outlet.
The contractor is Agate Construction, construction cost is $8.5 million.
