Bay Bridge

The Maryland Transportation Authority will accept sealed bids at the end of September for coatings work on the Westbound William Preston Lane, Jr. Memorial Bridge, which spans the Chesapeake Bay. The bridge and a parallel Eastbound structure are commonly referred to as the Bay Bridge. The bridge features a 1,500-foot-long suspension span and measures 22,790 feet in total length. The contract, which will require SSPC-QP 1 and QP 2 certification, involves coating structural steel on the West girder spans, spot-coating 780,285 sq ft of steel on the suspension spans, zone-painting 200,000 sq ft of steel on the East and West deck truss spans, and coating interior and exterior steel surfaces of the two 379 ft-high suspension towers. The contract requires the use of containment according to SSPC-Guide 6 to control the emission of the existing lead-bearing coatings. The Transportation Authority has released an engineer’s cost estimate in the $15-30M range.
