Power washing bridges is an essential component in our annual bridge maintenance schedule. Removing the salt and sand that has accumulated over the winter helps prevent expensive structural repairs and extends the service life of the bridge. Power washing also removes graffiti from bridges, underpasses and tunneled walkways.
City staff inspect and analyze the condition of each bridge to ensure that the bridge is structurally sound and to determine whether the bridge requires rehabilitation or maintenance. During bridge construction, expect minor delays due to construction equipment and reduced lanes.
