I-5 - N. Fork Lewis River Bridge - Painting - Project 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.
