OFF-SYSTEM BRIDGE MAINTENANCE PROJECT - PHASE TWO

This project involves the design and construction of various preventive maintenance procedures on "Off-System" bridges, which are bridges located on local roads or "Non Federal-Aid" routes. The maintenance activities are identified and programmed through our Bridge Maintenance and Management Program. The goal of the Plan is to extend the service life of the bridge assets and optimize the public's investments in City-maintained bridges.

The proposed preventive maintenance activities are those that address aging, oxidation, surface deterioration, and normal wear and tear from day-to-day performance and environmental conditions. The various maintenance treatments may include roadway activities such as expansion joint repair and replacement, seal coats, pavement patching, thin overlays, approach slab replacement, sidewalk reconstruction, and restoration of drainage systems. The superstructure and substructure activities may include items such as concrete repair and crack sealing, epoxy injection, steel painting, steel girder bearing replacement, and tuckpointing.

Various maintenance activities are planned for the following bridges and as shown on attachment:

1. Gravois Underpass (Bridge ID No. 400.10)
2. Chippewa Underpass (Bridge ID No. 400.09)
3. Laurel and Waterman Over MetroLink (Bridge ID No. 250.08)
