Guy West Bridge Painting and Rehabilitation

NV5 was selected by the City of Sacramento as the prime consultant to provide resident engineering, inspection, and materials testing services for the Guy West Bridge Painting and Rehabilitation Project.

The Guy West Bridge is a Sacramento landmark structure.

The Guy West Bridge is a steel suspension bridge over the American River that was constructed in 1966 for use by pedestrians and bicyclists. The project consists of removing and replacing the paint and repairing the bridge, including cable and suspender repair, deck and joint seal repair, handrail repair, and bearing pad replacement.

The major elements of this project included: removing the painting system and repainting the bridge, restoring suspension rope connections, repairing truss strut members, replacing deck seals, repairing deck spalls, relocating backstay cable clamps, replacing handrail hardware, repairing loose utility conduit, replacing approach truss bearing pads, replacing SMUD conduits, installing traffic detour signage, ensuring compliance with environmental requirements and permit conditions, and coordinating with the various entities within or surrounding the proposed bridge.
