Program Overview

Crossings

The Delaware River and Bay Authority has an extensive network of structures and facilities designed to provide the public with safe and efficient means of transportation as well as providing economic development and opportunities in the region. This transportation network primarily includes the Delaware Memorial Bridge (DMB), the Cape May-Lewes Ferry (CMLF) and the Forts Ferry Crossing.

The main facilities of the DMB consist of the Twin Spans, three (3) miles of approach roadways with sixteen (16) bridge structures, administration, maintenance and toll buildings, and all necessary appurtenances. The CMLF consists mainly of three (3) ferry vessels, two (2) marine terminals, approach roadways, one (1) bridge structure, administration, maintenance and public buildings, and all necessary appurtenances. The Forts Ferry Crossing includes one (1) passenger carrying marine vessel and three (3) marine docking facilities (Delaware City, Fort Mott, and Pea Patch Island).

This Capital Improvement Program (CIP) addresses the needs over the next five years to properly maintain and enhance the Authority's facilities to meet the increasing demands primarily associated with the transportation industry. In order to maintain the high level of safe and public service that this Authority has achieved since it was formed in 1962, we must continue to protect our investment as well as the public we serve through an effective and prudent CIP.

The implementation of this 5-Year CIP will assure that the public continues to enjoy quality transportation services in a safe and efficient manner as well as prudently maintain and enhance facilities as necessary.

Airports

The Delaware River and Bay Authority operates and maintains the New Castle Airport, the Civil Air Terminal, and the Delaware Airpark in Delaware and the Cape May and Millville Airports in New Jersey.

The Authority is maintaining and enhancing these airport facilities to meet the demands associated with the airport industry as well as ensuring safe and reliable operations. In order to maintain a high and safe level of public service, we must continue to protect our investment as well as the public we serve through an effective and prudent Airport Capital Improvement Program (CIP).

The projects will be carried out in several phases and in concert with established Airport Layout Plans, Master Plans, environmental and economic development considerations and in some cases, funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). These facilities are designed to provide the public with safe and efficient means of transportation as well as providing economic development opportunities in the region. The implementation of this CIP will assure that the public continues to enjoy quality transportation services in a safe and efficient manner.

In light of recent world events, security considerations at all of our airport facilities remains important.
