Bids are due April 29 from contractors intrested in working on the rehabilitation of the Seguin Covered Bridge in Charlotte, VT.

Although a plaque on the bridge uses the spelling Seguin, it is listed on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places as the Sequin Covered Bridge.

The contractor will oversee the cleaning and coating of the bridge as part of the rehabilitation. The timber surfaces will receive fire-retardant and insecticide/fungicide coatings. Contractors will also be responsible for environmental protection and containment.

Additionally, the project includes application of a penetrating silane water repellent treatment. The owner-specified manufacturers include BASF, Vexcon, Advanced Chemical Technologies, PROSOCO and Dayton Superior.

Other work will entail the removal and repair of concrete and stone masonry, as well as rehabilitation of the shoring superstructure.
