COUNCIL BLUFFS, IA--A Florida contractor will be painting the Union Pacific Missouri River Bridge under a recent award from the Iowa Department of Transportation.

The company will oversee the cleaning and recoating of the existing 2,600-foot-long steel rail bridge that connects Council Bluffs to Omaha, NE.

The other bids were $995,000 by Euro Paint LLC, of Lowellville, OH, and $1,027,900 by Pacific Painting Co. Inc., of Munster, IN.

The project bid June 16.

Scope of Work

The contractor will clean and recoat the 76,143 square feet of structural steel. The steel will require abrasive blast-cleaning to a Near White finish (SSPC-SP 10).

IowaDOT has awarded Elite Industrial Painting Inc. a $637,900 contract to clean and recoat the Union Pacific Missouri River Bridge. The rail bridge connects Council Bluffs, IA, and Omaha, NE.

All the steel on the bridge then will be coated with a zinc-rich epoxy, an aluminum epoxy mastic intermediate coat, and an aliphatic polyurethane topcoat.

Painting does not include the exterior of the mainline girders from the Iowa Pier to the Iowa abutment for the mainline steel.

The contractor is responsible for containment, waste transport and disposal.

About the Bridge

The Union Pacific Missouri River Bridge opened in 1916, replacing two bridges in the same location, according to Nebraska Memories. The first, which opened in 1873, was the first railroad bridge to cross the Missouri River and connected the First Transcontinental Railroad to the eastern half of the United States.
