The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is inviting bids for platform repairs and coating work at two rail stations.

The deadline is Jan. 9. The engineer’s estimate for the project is $462,993.38.

Scope of Work

The repairs include coating four concrete ramps, six benches, 144 bollards, and 660 linear feet of railing at the Settler's Landing and Main Avenue rapid transit stations.

The estimate for repairs and coatings to two rapid transit stations is about $463,000.

Concrete ramp surfaces will be shot-, water-, or abrasive-blast-cleaned and coated with an epoxy primer and a spray-applied elastomeric polyurea-polyurethane traffic bearing lining system. Surrounding steel surfaces on the ramp will be abrasive blast-cleaned to Near-White Metal standard (SSPC-SP 10).

Miscellaneous metal, structural steel, metal fabrications, handrails, uninsulated piping, and mechanical and electrical equipment surfaces will be power-tool-cleaned to SSPC-SP 3, spot-primed and coated with high-solids epoxy, and finish-coated with acrylic-polyurethane.

The work also involves the replacement and repairs of the platforms and observation area brick and concrete paving, as well as demolition of the stations' ticket booths.

Station History

The Settler’s Landing station opened July 10, 1996, as part of an extension of the Blue and Green lines of Cleveland’s light-rail service called the “Waterfront Line,” according to Wikipedia.

The station is across the street from the Settler’s Landing historical site, which marks the spot where the city’s namesake, Moses Cleaveland, ascended the bank of the Cuyahoga River in 1796.

The project includes replacement and restoration of the glass artwork at Settler's Station.

Influenced by the history of this location, artist Martin Boyle used etchings of ships, canoes, early settlers in covered wagons, local waterways, and a map of Cleaveland’s journey to decorate the eight glass panels that join to make a windscreen at the station. The panels measure 63 inches by about 24 inches; each image was hand-drawn in a classical etching style with a crosshatch technique.

This project will include replacement and restoration of the glass artwork.
