Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area Superintendent John J. Donahue announced today that culvert repair work on US Route 209 near Sand Hill Creek in Middle Smithfield Township will take place from September 21 to September 25. The project will be completed by Tecvac Inc.

The project includes: rehabilitation of the steel arch culvert on Route 209 over Sand Hill Creek at Milepost 0.8; painting and patching of corrugated steel arch culvert plates, and removing trees, placing riprap, and other miscellaneous work.

For the safety of visitors and workers, temporary area closures will be in effect while the work is completed. Motorists should expect minor delays and single-lane road closures due to heavy equipment maneuvering in the area. Depending on favorable weather conditions, the project is expected to be done at the end of September.

This project is administered by Federal Highway Administration (FHA) in cooperation with the National Park Service and is being paid for with Federal Lands to Parks (FLP) funds.
