$5M Rehab Let for Quad Cities Bridge

Comment | More

The Iowa Department of Transportation has awarded a $4,997,472 contract for coatings, lead abatement and related rehabilitation work on the Iowa-Illinois Memorial Bridge to Civil Constructors Inc., of Freeport, IL.

The project will begin April 4. Civil Constructors Inc. is owned by the Helm Group Inc.

Iowa-Illinois Memorial Bridge

This project involves rehabilitating the Iowa-Illinois Memorial Bridge, a pair of 5,148-foot by 24-foot dual suspension bridges over the Mississippi River.

Also known as the I-74 Bridge, the bridge carries Interstate 74 between Bettendorf, IA, and Moline, IL, near the geographic center of the Quad Cities. The northbound span was dedicated in 1935; the southbound span, in 1960. Both were upgraded in 1975. The twin suspension spans run 66 feet over the river.

Scope of Work

The project includes two sets of lump-sum items for abrasive-blast cleaning and recoating steel floor beam surfaces below a rehabilitated deck area. The existing coatings contain lead; containment and paint waste transport and disposal will be required.

The project also includes pressure-washing existing bridge surfaces for maintenance cleaning purposes. Additional information is available at the above-listed URL.

Reported by Paint BidTracker, a construction reporting service devoted to identifying contracting opportunities for the coatings community.

These are the same two bridges that will be replaced once/if the federal funding for the new bridges ever gets approved. It's always wiser to maintain what you have and not expect a "fast" approval of a Federal DOT project.

This will be a good project to begin the new year, but it's not a lot of money for this type of work.

Good luck to the lowest bidder as you will very much need it to complete this project.
