The Toledo Bend Project Joint Operation is soliciting bids for the refurbishment of four tainter gates at the Toledo Bend Dam in East Baton Rouge Parish, LA.

The estimated cost is $1.3 million. Bids are due Oct. 25.

The dam is jointly owned by the Sabine River Authority in Texas and Louisiana.

Scope of Work

This project consists of abrasive blast-cleaning and recoating Gates 2, 6, 8 and 10 at the Toledo Bend Dam, as well as performing structural repairs. The protective coatings should be applied to the existing and modified members as well as both faces of the skin plate.

Bids are due Oct. 25 for the refurbishment of four tainter gates at the Toledo Bend Dam. The project is estimated at $1.3 million.

Contractors must possess a minimum of five years of experience with protective coatings to be able to perform coating application. A list of recent projects and references is required.

Containment, treatment, and disposal of any dust, spray, drainage, or spillage fall under the responsibility of the contractor.

Installment of new rubber seals, guide rollers and cathodic protection anodes will be required. Wire ropes of all four gates will involve cleaning and lubrication. Additional work includes new steel plate stiffeners, weld repairs and other refurbishment as necessary.

Two sets of stoplogs will be provided, enabling the contractor to perform work on up to two gates simultaneously.

A mandatory pre-bid was held Oct. 11 to answer contractor questions.

About the Structure

Land acquisition for the Toledo Bend Project began in May 1963. By April 1964, construction had started on the dam, spillway and powerhouse. Production of the embankment and water impound was completed in October 1966. Construction of the powerhouse concluded in 1969, according to the Sabine River Authority.

The current facilities include a dam and powerhouse, spillway, tailrace and canal, transformer and switchyard, turbines, penstocks and transmission lines. As it stands today, the rolled earth dam reaches a maximum height of 185 feet mean sea level. As the largest man-made body of water in the south, the reservoir is roughly 85 miles long with 1,200 miles of shore, covering 185,000 acres.
