DelDOT is pleased to be able to report the Indian River Inlet Bridge on Route 1 is reopened to traffic effective immediately. The decision to reopen the bridge was made following today's successful use of sonar technology to examine the depth and shape of the inlet. These readings provided sufficient assurance to bridge engineers that the bottom of the inlet has not shifted or eroded in a manner that would have created a safety concern. The result is the structure remains safe for traffic based on best-available data and has been reopened. DelDOT will proceed with a more detailed inspection using professional divers on Tuesday of this week, as previously planned.
