Gay St. Bridge project delayed, again

Demolition of the Gay Street Bridge, originally slated for August and then moved back to November, has been delayed again. The new start date is late January or early February.

In an interview Wednesday, Mike D. Holva, Project Management, Bridges, for PennDOT’s District 6-0 in King of Prussia, said that contractors’ bids based on final specifications for the project are due to be opened November 29. After contractor selection, PennDOT expects to issue a "notice to proceed" January 14, 2008.

Following that date, Holva said, "there will be at least a two-week period" before any work is done, in which the contractor is required to place signs announcing the bridge’s closing. There may also be short delays beyond that: "It’s possible that contractors may find something" in the specifications or on site that would require adjustment to the proposed work plan, he said.

With those considerations in mind, Holva estimated that work would likely begin in earnest "sometime in February."

It is estimated that the project will take two years to complete meaning the new bridge will be ready sometime in early 2010.
