This project is a complete bridge reconstruction. Both the north and southbound bridges will be removed. Two new bridges will be constructed over Goddard Road and Sexton-Kilfoil Drain. This will improve the vertical profile of Goddard Road.
With the existing Conrail railroad spur no longer in operation, the Goddard Road Bridge can be reduced in length and height. A lower profile with improved sight distance will be provided to improve operations.
The need for a big bridge over Goddard is obsolete.
Future maintenance costs of the existing bridge would be significant if the structure is not replaced.
