The NH-ME Metallized Memorial Bridge

Metallizing in NH was a coating used only sparingly in the past at critical locations on two major bridges. Its greater use was severely limited by the lack of qualified applicators, absence from bridge fabricator operations, and overall excessive cost. This picture changed dramatically with the impetus of the new metallized Memorial Bridge project and the massive investment in metallizing equipment at a large local bridge fabricator that made metallizing possible for this bridge. The successful use and ten-year performance of the thermal spray coating (TSC), i.e. metallizing, on this bridge has had a significant impact on metallized New England bridges to
follow.

This is the story of the largest movable bridge replacement in NH’s history, a compelling account of new ideas to match and exceed an historically significant 90-year old lift bridge in design, style, and innovation with today’s unique high-performance features designed to last a century.
These bridge features include a first-in-the-world structural design, and the first use of thermal spray zinc coating in New Hampshire and Maine, whose pewter-colored finish blends with the naval and marine river setting, and whose success has encouraged the growth of metallizing in shops and on bridges in New England over the past decade.
