Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Comment | More

Fort Hill Bridge

The West Virginia Department of Transportation will accept sealed bids on February 23, 2010, for coatings work on the Eugene A. Carter Memorial Bridge in Charleston.  The structure, which is known locally as the Fort Hill Bridge, carries the state’s heaviest traffic burden over the Kanawha River.  The 17-span, 2,246 foot-long bridge includes 10 continuous deck girder spans, a 465-foot-long simple through-truss main span, and six continuous concrete box beam spans.

The project includes recoating a total of approximately 7,155 tons of existing structural steel, including 6,097 tons of mainline steel and 1,058 tons of approach ramp steel. The steel will be abrasive-blast cleaned to a Near White finish (SSPC-SP 10) and recoated with an organic zinc-rich primer, a waterborne acrylic intermediate, and a waterborne acrylic finish.  The contract includes erecting containment to control the emissions of the existing lead-bearing coatings.
