Certified Coatings of Concord, CA, secured a contract of $14,941,800 from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to recoat existing steel surfaces on the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, a 2,161.5-foot-long structure that spans the Ohio River between Cincinnati, OH and Covington, KY. The historic bridge, which was completed in 1866, features a 1,057-foot-long main span. The structural steel will be recoated with an epoxy or urethane-based organic zinc-rich coating system. The cables will be refinished with a waterborne elastomeric acrylic coating. The contract includes erecting Class 2A containment (SSPC-Guide 6) to control the emission of the existing coatings, which are presumed to contain significant amounts of lead.
