Intech Contracting LLC, of Lexington, KY, has beat out seven other bidders to win a $22,689,657.10 contract for painting and rehabilitation work on the Mathews Bridge in Florida.

Bids ranged up to $36.6 million for the Florida Department of Transportation project, which was budgeted at $25,492,576.

The steel through-truss bridge—7,736 feet long and 58 feet wide— carries the Arlington Expressway over the St. Johns River, connecting downtown Jacksonville and Arlington.

The Mathews Bridge is Florida’s oldest high-level cantilever truss bridge.

The first high-level cantilever truss bridge in Florida when it was built in 1953, the Mathews is now eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

Rehab Work

The project includes cleaning and recoating structural steel surfaces along the approximately 1.4-mile span. The current coatings include lead; containment and SSPC-QP 2 certification are required.

The work also requires installing cathodic protection systems, including impressed current and integral pile jacketing; replacing neoprene pads on bents and piers; rehabilitating expansion joints; and installing new steel elements, including structural steel, ladders, platforms, and railing.

In 2007, the open grate bridge deck was replaced with a $12.9 million Exodermic deck, resulting in a concrete riding surface. It was the first Exodermic deck used on a steel through-truss bridge.

An Exodermic (composite, unfilled steel grid) deck is comprised of a reinforced concrete slab on top of, and composite with, an unfilled steel grid. The deck typically weighs 35% to 50% less than the equivalent rebar-reinforced concrete slab, the manufacturer says.
