Handling Issues for Lead and Asbestos in Bridge Construction

timber piles

 

This project examined the regulatory environment and common practices of state DOTs regarding issues of lead-based paint and asbestos-containing materials in bridge maintenance and repair. TechMRT researchers sent questionnaires to all 50 states, with 39 responding. The responses were used to formulate primary recommendations, including training TxDOT employees in OSHA regulations, limiting employee exposure to hazardous materials, and establishing oversight of contractor controls and safety protocols.
