This bridge preservation project is part of the State Bridge Unit Bridge Painting Quality Assurance for the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) in Division 4. The project included the painting and blasting of four structures ranging from four spans to eight spans in length throughout Smithfield, North Carolina.
Our Industrial Coatings team provided inspection and documentation duties, monitored traffic control, monitored abrasive blasting, measured the surface profile of the blasted surface, monitored the ambient weather conditions, and observed the mixing of the paint components. We also witnessed the application of each coat on the structures and both determined and recorded the dry film thickness. Our team insured all applicable specification and directives were complied with and we monitored the removal of hazardous blast media and lead paint waste.
