Hopkins Bridge, 1989-2010

Identifier: IV.A.2.a.

Scope and Contents

The Delaware Department of Transportation proposed to replace a 12-foot, 66-foot long bridge that bordered the wildlife preserve and state park with a bridge that measured 40 feet wide by 120 feet long. Environmentalists worried that, along with the immediate lsos of a significant portion of the wildlife preserve, an expanded bridge would influence future highway studies to allow for the widening of roads throughout White Clay Creek Preserve.
