The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will accept bids June 9 for painting, repairs and related renovation work on the Avonmore Bridge—a project estimated at up to $2.5 million.

The bridge carries a two-lane road and one sidewalk over the Kiskiminetas River at the Westmoreland-Armstrong County line. The historic two-span parker through truss bridge is 571 feet long and 27 feet wide.

The bridge was opened in 1937 and last rehabbed in 1985.

Scope of Work

The project involves painting the entire structure; performing concrete bridge deck repair, crack sealing, pressure mortar pointing and guiderail replacement; and other miscellaneous construction.

Structural steel surfaces will be cleaned and coated using an organic zinc-rich coating system. The steel will be abrasive blast-cleaned to SSPC-SP 10 (near white) and recoated with a three-coat organic zinc-epoxy-urethane system. The project also includes application of 572 square yards of epoxy resin protective coating for reinforced concrete surfaces.

The existing coatings contain lead; containment according to SSPC-Guide 6 and waste disposal according to Guide 7 will be required.

The contract has an estimated value between $1 million and $2.5 million.

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