Thermico, Inc. of Midland, MI, secured a contract of $48,880 from the city of Midland to stain wood surfaces and coat structural steel on the Tridge, a three-way pedestrian bridge over the confluence of the Chippewa and Titabawassee Rivers in downtown Midland.
The Tridge was built in 1981 at a cost of $732,000.
The majority of the wood, except walking surfaces and concealed underside surfaces, will be stained with a semi-transparent alkyd-based finish. Select steel elements will be coated with an epoxy primer and a urethane gloss enamel finish.
The project requires precautionary measures to prevent debris, surface preparation waste, stain, and coatings from entering the rivers. The spill prevention plan also prohibits spray application of the stain and coatings.
