The contractor will apply a four-coat organic zinc-rich system to existing steel surfaces using products by an owner-approved manufacturer, which include Ameron (PPG), Carboline, International Paint, Sherwin-Williams, and Wasser.

All box truss members and steel bent members will receive a shop coating only, while areas enclosed by sealed diaphragms will not require coating.

Existing coatings contain lead and will require containment according to Class 2A for environmental protection.
