A Wisconsin contractor has been awarded a $19.9 million contract to replace one vertical lift bridge and rehabilitate another over the Milwaukee River.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation awarded the contract March 15 for coating, lead abatement, shop painting and other work on the two Milwaukee bridges to Edward Kraemer and Sons Inc., of Plain, WI.

The contractor will complete the design and construction on both structures.

Scope of Work

Work on the 172-by-74-foot West Wisconsin Avenue Bridge will include major rehabilitation of the structural, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical components of the lift span; removal and replacement of the concrete deck and sidewalks on the fixed approach spans; rehabilitation of existing bridge railings; installation of new railings; painting structural steel; repairs to the concrete substructure units; repairs to the structural, architectural, HVAC, plumbing and electrical components of the bridge house; and minor reconstruction of portions of the roadway approaches to the bridge.

The project includes cleaning and recoating about 20,000 square feet of structural steel surfaces. The steel will be abrasive blast-cleaned to SSPC-SP 10 (near white) and coated with a three-coat epoxy system. The existing coatings contain lead; containment is required.

 The Wisconsin Avenue Bridge has been a Milwaukee fixture since before WWII.

The project also includes fabricating and erecting new structural steel that will be galvanized and coated with a two-coat epoxy system. Collins Engineers will perform the coatings inspection services.

Finally, the project involves designing and constructing a replacement 189-by-73-foot vertical lift bridge over the river.

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