Lettiere, Gormley cut

ribbonfor Greenbank Road bridge


 

Transportation Commissioner Jack Lettiere today joined State Senator Bill Gormley and other state and local officials to cut the ribbon for the rehabilitated Greenbank Road Bridge over the Mullica River in Mullica and Washington townships. The bridge has been closed for two years due to this extensive rehabilitation.

“This project is an excellent example this administration’s commitment to Fix-It-First,” said Commissioner Lettiere. ”For too long infrastructure repairs on our highways and bridges have languished. A sound transportation network is the foundation for a strong, vibrant economy. “

“I know I am not the only person here today pleased at the re-opening of the Greenbank Road bridge,” said Senator Bill Gormley. “I’d like to thank the DOT and officials in Washington and Mullica townships for working together so diligently to make this project happen, and the residents of the region for their patience.”

Originally built in 1926, the bridge was structurally deficient and functionally obsolete. The original bridge carried two 10 foot lanes and had very narrow one 1 foot shoulders. DOT worked closed with the State Historic Preservation Office to design a new bridge in keeping with the character of the original structure. The rehabilitated bridge has two 11 foot lanes and two 2 foot shoulders.

The $4.7 million project was begun in May, 2001. The contractor for it was Industrial Engineering Works (I.E.W) Inc., of Hamilton, NJ. Funding for design was paid for by the federal government, with construction funded by the New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund.
