This paper describes a bridge coating operation and maintenance manual that was developed for the City of Vancouver (City). The City operates and maintains an inventory of 33 bridges with coated steel elements, including three major bridges that were constructed in the early part of the twentieth century. The City has carried out ongoing maintenance painting on these structures for many decades using in-house bridge crews. The coating maintenance manual is intended to provide guidance to the City’s operations personnel to support consistent work standards, encourage use of industry best practices, and track work accomplishment, thereby contributing to the optimal use of the City’s resources. The maintenance manual consists of several elements, each of which is described in this paper. These elements include coating condition assessment reports and coating maintenance plans for each major structure, a bridge coating inventory, a list of coating systems with a coating system selection procedure, work planning tools, accomplishment tracking tools, maintenance painting procedures, safe work procedures for hazardous activities (such as lead abatement), environmental management plans, training materials, and recommendations for tools and equipment.

Key words: bridge, coating, maintenance, rehabilitation, repair, recoating, overcoating, spot painting, operations and maintenance manual, management system, corrosion control.
