    Work has started (left) on the Route 13 underpass that will connect Phase 1 and Phase II of the Wilmington-New Castle Greenway. A rendering (right) of what the tunnel will look like when complete.

      Point of clarification.

      The landscaping shown in the rendering will not be part of the tunnel project. Once the entire New Castle Industrial Track pathway is complete, hopefully a ‘friends of’ organization will materialize to help implement some beautification projects among other needs.

      I’m looking at the form work in the photograph and was curious about the ability to access the bridge beams for inspection by DelDot workers. Will these beams be buried and rendered inaccessible, or will a point of access be incorporated to allow for inspections? With the emphasis on bridge safety over the past few years, combined with the recent I-495 problems, I believe that any project that has the potential to affect the Dot’s ability to inspect should be accommodating for this. That being my inquiry, I look forward to seeing the finished product.
      Thank you.
