Vimas Painting Company, Inc. (Campbell, OH) was awarded a contract of $16,240,000 by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to recoat 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 project includes coating structural steel with a zinc-epoxy-urethane or moisture-cured urethane system, as well as coating bridge cables with an elastomeric acrylic system. The existing coatings are presumed to contain a significant amount of lead, necessitating Class 2A containment according to SSPC-Guide 6.
