An Illinois contractor has been awarded a $208,877.35 contract for cleaning and sealing the decking on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Bridge, which connects St. Louis, MO, and East St. Louis, IL, over the Mississippi River.

The Illinois Department of Transportation awarded the contract to Edwards-Kamadulski LLC, an engineering and construction firm based in East St. Louis, IL. The company submitted the lower of two bids for the project. Work is already underway.

Vital Transportation Link

Known as Veterans’ Memorial Bridge when it opened in 1951, the King is a 4,009-foot cantilever truss bridge.

Originally known as Veterans’ Memorial Bridge, the Martin Luther King Bridge spans the Mississippi River at St. Louis, MO.

Originally a toll bridge, the King fell into disrepair in 1967 when the free Poplar Street Bridge opened and traffic began to use that route, sapping the King’s toll revenues. The toll was removed in 1987, and the King underwent a $24 million renovation, reopening in 1989. Lighting was added a year later.

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

The current project involves cleaning and sealing existing decking on the bridge and resurfacing 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.
