$4M KY Tainter Gate Painting Awarded

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Comment | More

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $4,208,704 contract to an Illinois contractor to clean and paint several tainter gates at Barkley Dam in Grand Rivers, KY.

Completed in 1966, the 157-foot-tall Barkley Dam contains two embankment sections, a navigation lock, a powerhouse, and a spillway section. The spillway section is comprised of 12, 50-foot-tall, 55-foot-wide tainter gates wide-mounted on concrete piers.

Barkley Dam (shown here) and Kentucky Dam form the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.

The Total Small Business set-aside project involves cleaning and recoating metal surfaces on gates 1, 3, 10, 11 and 12. The project, which had been estimated at $1 million to $5 million, also includes removing lead-based paint from metal surfaces, including downstream skin plate, strut arms, diagonal bracings, stiffeners, vertical ribs, and trunnion anchor beams.

About the Site

The construction of Barkley Dam, along with Kentucky Dam, formed the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, which stopped the flow of the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers and formed Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. Both the dam and lake are named for former Vice President Alben Barkley, a Kentuckian.

The dam, located above the mouth of the Cumberland River, impounds a maximum of 2,082,000 acre-feet.
