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.
