The Florida Department of Transportation is seeking contractors to paint structural steel on the Apalachicola River Bridge in Calhoun County, Florida.

The work will consist of cleaning and painting superstructure steel members. The steel will be cleaned to a Bare Metal Power Tool Cleaning standard (SSPC-SP 11), Hand-Tool (SSPC-SP 2) and Power-Tool (SSPC-SP 3) cleaned to remove all existing coatings. The existing structural steel will be coated with an organic zinc rich system. This system is subject to change according to project requirements.

Certifications for SSPC-QP 1, QP 2 and QP 3 are required.

SSPC SP11 is a power tool standard, not an abrasive blast standard and the requirements are different from SP3,
