The City of Tacoma, WA, will accept bids Jan. 4, 2011, for rehabilitation and painting of the East Lincoln Avenue Bridge.
The city estimates the total contract at between $3.5 million and $4.5 million.
This project involves rehabilitating the 81-year-old through-truss bridge over the Puyallup River. The structure is 470 feet long and 30 feet wide.
Scope of Work
The project will generally consist of:
- Replacing the concrete bridge deck for spans 2 and 3;
- Providing a modified concrete overlay for spans 1 and 4;
- Rehabilitating or replacing the bridge bearings;
- Other small bridge repair items;
- Removing all existing paint from the steel structure; and
- Painting all steel elements.
The project includes abrasive blast-cleaning and recoating structural steel surfaces. The existing coatings contain lead; containment is required. SSPC-QP 2 certification is also required.
The project also includes performing additional repairs. The bridge was previously rehabilitated in 1944.
