The awarded contractor will oversee recoating existing structural steel members. The existing coatings are in poor condition.

Pack rust is present between the top flange of the end diaphragms and underside of the deck throughout the entire bridge structure.

The steel will be recoated with an inorganic zinc-epoxy-polyurethane system; this system is subject to change according to project requirements. Approved manufacturers are Carboline, ICI Devoe, Elite, Indmar, Induron, International Paint, PPG, Sherwin-Williams, Tnemec, U.S. Coatings and Valspar.

Disposal of materials is required. Certifications for SSPC-QP 1 and QP 2 are also required. SSPC-QP 2 certification will be required for contractors and subcontractors performing field surface preparation in existing structural steel with hazardous coatings.
