I-5 - North Fork Lewis River Bridge Painting - Photos

Time and the elements take their toll on steel bridges. Paint ages and peels, allowing rust to bloom on the exposed steel.

Spot painting helps address urgent needs, but a full painting project is necessary every so often to preserve the structures for the long haul.
