OR Awards Bus Bay Coating Contract
The floors of a Portland, OR, bus maintenance facility will be getting a major upgrade with the recent award of a coating contract to The Rodriguez Corp.
Oregon’s Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District awarded the $52,837.52 contract for work at the Center Street bus maintenance facility. The facility supports the highest volume of buses in the region.
The Portland-area contractor will clean and coat a total of 8,867 square feet of concrete floor surfaces within 19 bus bays, a loading dock area, and a solvent recycler area. The concrete will be degreased, shot blast-cleaned, and coated with a 100% solids, non-skid epoxy system.
In 2009, TriMet was awarded $53.3 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Stimulus) funds for a variety of projects, including work at the Center Street facility. Underground tanks at the site have been replaced, and broken concrete in parking and travel lanes has been repaired.
The Center Street bus maintenance facility services about 280 buses per day.
