The Illinois Department of Transportation will accept bids Aug. 5 for deck cleaning and sealing on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Bridge, which spans the Mississippi River at St. Louis, MO.

Known as the Veterans’ Memorial Bridge when it opened in 1951, the King Bridge is a 4,009-foot cantilever truss bridge that connects St. Louis with East St. Louis, IL.

The Martin Luther King Bridge, originally known as Veterans’ Memorial Bridge, connects St. Louis, MO, and East St. Louis, IL.

The then-toll bridge fell into disrepair in 1967 when the free Poplar Street Bridge was constructed, and traffic began to use that route, leading to declining toll revenues. The toll was removed in 1987, and the bridge underwent a $24 million renovation, reopening in 1989. Lighting was added the following year. In 2009, the bridge was temporarily closed to reduce the four-lane configuration to three wider lanes, install a waterproofing membrane over the surface, and install a concrete barrier to separate eastbound and westbound traffic.

The bridge is now a vital transportation link for the region and an important part of the historic ambience of the St. Louis riverfront.

Scope of Work

This project involves cleaning and sealing existing decking on the bridge and resurfacing of the bridge approaches. The project includes 165,275 square feet of concrete sealant application, traffic control and protection, and interstate weekend closures.

Also included are 75 square yards of HMA surface removal-butt joint; 148 square yards of PCC surface removal-butt joint; 30 tons of polymerized HMA surface course; 16 square yards of shoulder removal; 16 square yards of HMA shoulders; 13 tons of HMA shoulders; removal and re-erection of 610 feet of guardrail; 660 feet of HMA shoulder curb; and 330 feet of preformed plastic pavement marking.
