The Washington State Department of Transportation has awarded an $11,981,648 contract to Geronimo Painting Co. Inc., of Lisbon, OH, to clean and recoat structural steel surfaces on the North Fork Lewis River Bridge.

Geronimo Painting bested seven other bidders for the contract. Bids ranged up to $21,972414.

The continuous Warren through truss bridge, 1,310 feet long and 48 feet wide, was built in 1940.

North Fork Lewis River Bridge

Eight coating bids were submitted, topping out at nearly $22 million.

The bridge carries Interstate 5 over the North Fork Lewis River in Clark County, WA.

Scope of Work

All steel surfaces on will be abrasive blast-cleaned to bare metal.  The primer should be applied the same day as the initial surface preparation.   

Containment is required. Removed paint, debris, and abrasive blast media will be collected and removed daily to prevent excess weight on the bridge.

Reported by Paint BidTracker, a construction reporting service devoted to identifying contracting opportunities for the coatings community.
