The Maryland State Highway Administration is seeking contractors to bid on a project involving the coating of three bridges located in Kent County, Maryland.

Work will include cleaning and coating each of the three bridges. All steel surfaces will require abrasive blast-cleaning to Near White (SSPC-SP 10) and coating with the MDSHA System C, which consists of an organic zinc-rich primer, an epoxy intermediate and a urethane finish. Steel gusset plates will also receive MDSHA System C with an additional stripe coating of penetrating sealer primer around all connections between coats one and two.

Contractors will also oversee the coating of steel railings with MDSHA System H, which consists of a penetrating sealer primer, aluminum-filled epoxy mastic intermediate coat and an aliphatic urethane finish coating.

Existing coatings contain lead. Class 1A containment according to SSPC-Guide 6 will be required. SSPC-QP 1 and QP 2 certifications will also be required. MDSHA personnel will perform the coatings inspection services.
