DRPA Holds Public Meeting on Walt Whitman Bridge Deleading and Painting Project

The Delaware River Port Authority is ready to begin the second phase of the De-leading and Painting Project on the Walt Whitman Bridge. In preparation for the start of the project, DRPA will hold a Public Meeting on Tuesday, August 12th, 6-8pm, at the Gloucester City Library, 50 N. Railroad Avenue in Gloucester City, New Jersey.

The meeting agenda includes a presentation on the schedule and technical description of the work that needs to be done, discussion of the steps that will be taken to minimize the impact on neighbors, and a question and answer session.

DRPA Chief Executive Office, John J. Matheussen, says “The Authority remains committed to keeping the public informed about the Walt Whitman Bridge Project and will continue to work hard to cause as little inconvenience as possible.”
The project is expected to take about 15 months to complete at an estimated cost of almost $10-million.

The Delaware River Port Authority is a regional transportation agency. DRPA owns and operates the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross Bridges, and PATCO, the Philadelphia Cruise Terminal and the RiverLink Ferry.
