Corps of Engineers awards $693,000 contract to paint North Hartland Lake Service Bridge in North Hartland; work to start on or about June 3

Published May 3, 2013

CONCORD, Mass. Painting of the North Hartland Lake Service Bridge in North Hartland, Vermont, will be completed under the terms of a $693,000 contract recently awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.


Work will be accomplished by P.S. Bruckel, Inc. of Avon, N.Y. Construction is scheduled to start on or about June 3, 2013 and take about one-and-a-half to two months to complete. The contract was awarded on April 5, 2013.


The work consists of preparing and painting all steel surfaces of the Service Bridge and related items at North Hartland Lake in North Hartland. Work will include removing all paint, including the primer and topcoats, from all steel surfaces of the bridge and related items. The paint system to be applied to the prepared steel is a four-coat single component moisture-cure polyurethane paint system.


The existing paint system on the bridge has a lead containing primer, therefore all surface preparation work will be performed in accordance with applicable environmental regulations and worker health and safety standards including containment, emissions monitoring, collection, and disposal of all contaminated blast debris. Full containment during preparation and painting is required.
