$5M Smith Point Bridge Rehab Awarded

Monday, January 10, 2011

Comment | More

Suffolk County, NY, has awarded a $5,096,422 contract to Gibson & Cushman Contracting, of Port Jefferson, NY, for rehabilitation of the Smith Point Bridge over Narrow Bay.

The project should add about 10 years to the life of the bridge, which connects Mastic Beach and Fire Island.

The bridge opened July 4, 1959, and has already eclipsed the 50-year life span that engineers estimate for such structures, County Executive Steve Levy recently told newsday.com.

“At some point, we may be looking at a total replacement,” he said. “But that would be a huge undertaking, somewhere around $60 million.”

Scope of Work

The project involves rehabilitating the two-lane, steel-deck bascule drawbridge, 1,216 feet long and 28 feet wide, which rises 22 feet over Narrow Bay. The project includes cleaning and recoating superstructure surfaces, including an 80-foot main span, bascule leaves, two flanking spans and towers.

The steel will be abrasive-blast-cleaned to SSPC-SP 10 and recoated with a zinc-rich primer, an epoxy intermediate, and a urethane finish.

The existing coatings contain lead; Class A containment is required. The bridge was previously painted in 2003.

The work is expected to begin in the coming weeks and take about 18 months to complete.
