About the Project

The project will rehabilitate the King Street (Route 7) bridge over I-395.  The bridge was constructed in 1970. The five-span structure carries six lanes of traffic, three in the eastbound direction and three in the westbound direction along with a median sidewalk. The total length of the bridge is approximately 410 feet. The bridge consists of concrete deck, steel superstructure, and concrete substructure.    

The bridge is a candidate for federal funds for replacement.

Proposed repairs include the following:

  • Installing An Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) system with Latex Modified Concrete (LMC) overlay.
  • Repair damaged concrete and install an ICCP system in the pier caps.
  • Repair damaged column concrete and apply Electrochemical Chloride Extraction (ECE) treatment, and seal the treated surface with a breathable sealer.
  • Repair damaged Abutment concrete, apply ECE treatment, and seal the treated surface with a breathable sealer
  • Repair and paint all steel beams and replace bearings.
  • Reconstruct the substandard bridge barrier/railing. 
  • Repair and/or replace guardrail, mill and overlay approaches.
  • Minor pedestrian, bicycle and lighting improvements
  • Repair roadway pavement and joints

The existing bridge has an average traffic count of 24,000 vehicles per day.
