Cuyahoga County (OH) officials will open bids Sept. 21 for repairs, coating and other rehabilitation work on the Columbus Road Lift Bridge over the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland—a contract estimated at up to $34.5 million.

Scope of Work

The project involves rehabilitating the existing vertical lift bridge and two towers over the Cuyahoga River, including replacing the 242-foot-long main span. The work includes cleaning and recoating 80,083 square feet of tower surfaces.

The steel will be abrasive blast-cleaned to SSPC-SP 10 (near white) and recoated with an organic zinc-rich primer, an epoxy intermediate, and a urethane finish. The existing coatings contain lead; containment will be required.

The project also includes shop-coating new structural steel with an inorganic zinc-rich primer, an epoxy intermediate, and a urethane finish. Field touch-up will be required.

Finally, the project includes applying:

• 606 square yards of  epoxy-urethane sealant;

• 685 square feet of high molecular weight methacrylate sealant; and

• 94 square yards of Type A waterproofing.

A pre-bid conference was held Aug. 11 at the site.

Historic Bridge

The bridge was designed by Wilbur Wilson and Associates of Cleveland and built by Wisconsin Bridge and Iron Company of Milwaukee. Completed in 1940, it is among Cleveland’s oldest vertical lift bridges, according to historicbridge.org.

The bridge is significant for its highly rare incline and as a documented example of a bridge funded through Depression relief programs; a plaque on the bridge identifies the Public Works Administration’s involvement, the site says.
