Abhe & Svoboda Awarded $41M RI Bridge Project

Newport Pell Bridge

Abhe and Svoboda Inc. of Prior Lake, MN, has been selected to repair, clean and recoat about one million square feet of structural steel surfaces on the famed Newport Pell Bridge, featured on the back of the Rhode Island state quarter.

The $41,363,310 contract was awarded by the Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority.

The 11,248-foot-long, 48-foot-wide suspension bridge, which opened in 1969, connects the cities of Newport and Jamestown over the Narragansett Bay. About 27,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily. The bridge is the only toll road in Rhode Island, with a $4-per-car toll in each direction.

The contract requires SSPC-QP1 and QP-2 certification.

The project includes abrasive blast-cleaning and recoating the steel with a NEPCOAT-approved system. The existing coatings contain lead; containment is required. A third-party NACE/SSPC-certified inspection firm will oversee the coatings work, which is anticipated to be about two-thirds of the contract’s total value.
