NCHRP Synthesis 20-05/Topic 28-04 [Final (Synthesis)]

Lead-Based Paint Removal for Steel Highway Bridges
[ NCHRP 20-05 (Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices) ]

  Project Data

This synthesis describes the current state of the practice for the removal of lead-based paint from existing highway steel bridges. It will be of interest to state department of transportation bridge maintenance and construction engineers; regulators, consultants, and contractors involved with the removal of lead paint from bridges and structures; and structural coatings specialists, chemists, and researchers. Technologies developed over the past several years to remove paint and contain debris, and to protect workers and the environment are described. Detailed information on regulations, agency specifications, lead exposures during coatings removal, and containment practices is also presented.  The report for this topic can be purchased at http://www.trb.org/news/blurb_detail.asp?id=3306
