Mighty Mackinac Bridge
began work on the Mackinac Bridge during October 1996. The project
was completed in October 1998 on schedule and under budget.
In 1958, the Mackinac Bridge was described as the "finest,
safest, and most beautiful bridge the world has ever seen."
The description s still accurate. It was also then described as
the longest suspension bridge in the world. This is still true despite
the fact the Golden Gate Bridge, the Verrazano - Narrows Bridge,
and the Humber Bridge in England have longer center spans. The Mackinac
Bridge with its total suspension span length of 8344 feet from anchor
block to anchor block remains unchallenged.
For the first
time since the construction of the "Mighty Mac" the State
of Michigan Department of Transportation is undertaking the sandblasting
to a near white finish and re-coating the structure. More than half
a century of maintenance painting with lead based coatings has come
to an end in accordance with Federal and State regulations eliminating
the use of Lead based paints.
Co., Inc. with its 30 years of experience in industrial coatings
applications has been awarded the first phase of the rehabilitation
program that will take a decade and a half to complete. Seaway's
revolutionary approach to engineering and containment has seen forward
progress maintained even through the harsh Northern Michigan winter
months, during which we have experienced winds to 62 mph and wind
chills of 48 degrees below zero.
of Seaway Painting would appreciate the opportunity of discussing
with you, solutions to your lead abatement needs. With Federal standards
denoting lead abatement to be performed in negative containment
and our innovative approach to deck and scaffolding configuration
