Rapid Deployment Painting-Jefferson County

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is seeking new approaches to bridge maintenance painting that limit inconvenience to the motoring public. A promising method termed "Rapid Deployment Painting" is used for painting overpass bridges. With this method, off-peak hour painting is employed, and specialized materials and equipment are used to clean and paint structural steel over traffic lanes in a reduced time period. The Kentucky Transportation Center will observe, conduct tests, evaluate coatings to be used on this type of project, and make recommendations for future operations. Phase 2 work adds six new coating systems to apply, test, and evaluate.
