The Department of the Interior is seeking contractors for rehabilitation of the Ellis Island Service Bridge.

A pre-bid meeting will be held today (Nov. 30). Bids are due Dec. 20.

Scope of Work

The project includes structural rehabilitation and repair of structural components on the Ellis Island Service Bridge, and rehabilitation of current paved areas on the north end of Ellis Island.

The project will consist of repairing, strengthening or replacing deteriorated portions of the existing bridge, including replacement of the decking systems, installation of a crutch bent, and cleaning and coating all piles, bent caps, floor beams and trusses. All steel surfaces at bent locations that are below the bearing plates are also to be cleaned and coated in their entirety. Structural steel will be power-tool cleaned to bare metal standards (SSPC-SP 11) and coated with an epoxy mastic primer, intermediate coat and a polyurethane topcoat. SSPC Guide 6, Class-1P containment is required.

The bridge was last coated in 1986 and it is assumed that existing coatings do not contain heavy metals.
