BRIDGE PAINTING: CONNECTICUT'S COST EXPERIENCE

Maintenance painting of steel bridges has been a concern for transportation agencies since the introduction of iron and steel structures in the 1800s. Historically, the protective coating of choice consisted of lead-based paints that could be easily applied with little or no surface preparation. During the latter part of the 1970s and 1980s, health and environmental concerns with lead additives in protective coatings became an issue. This paper describes Connecticut's bridge painting program.
