Recoating the 285-foot-long Burnwell TP Bridge over I-77 in Kanawha County will include abrasive blast-cleaning to Near White standards (SSPC-SP 10) and applying a three-coat organic zinc-rich system.

Work on the William Currence Memorial Bridge, which crosses Mill Creek in Randolph County, involves cleaning and recoating 58 tons of structural steel from abutment 1 to abutment 2 on the 99-foot-long, 22-foot-wide bridge.

All three structures will require containment for abatement of lead-based coatings.
