Illinois River Miter Gate Installation

This project was governed by the Corp of Engineers. It involved the blasting and coating of three sets of Carbon Steel miter gates designed to contain water in a lock and dam system on the Illinois River. The gates were matched sets of gates measuring 39' x 60' to 50' x 60 each leaf of the match set. They were coated with a Military specified coating system of one Vinyl Zinc Coat followed by three coats of alternating colored Vinyl Enamel. This project was completed under extreme critical parameters regarding coating thickness, atmospheric conditions, employee certification, safety guidelines and schedule demands. The very soundly reinforced structures, season in which the work was performed,  and the stringent Corp of Engineer regulations and specifications combined with an extremely accelerated work schedule presented itself as a worthy adversary, but was completed on time, in budget and perfectly in tune to the requirements set forth by the Corp of Engineers.
