The concrete deck of the new bridge built several years ago over the Snake River connecting Annex, Oregon to Weiser, Idaho on the U.S. 95 Spur will be sealed starting May 6 with an epoxy overlay to extend its life.
The work is a short-duration project, spanning two weeks. The epoxy helps to seal and protect the deck of the new bridge, keep the salts out, stop corrosion, and extend the life of the new structure. The $10 million bridge project was completed in 2010.
Crews are expected to work a 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. if weather allows. Drivers will be limited to one lane across the bridge, with traffic controlled by a temporary signal at the end of the bridge. The other half of the bridge will be shut down for work.
Truesdell Corp., of Glendale, Arizona, is the prime contractor on this $178,000 sealing job.
