Part of the Major Maintenance Program


REQUEST FOR
PROPOSAL

P
ROJECT
S
UMMARY

Seattle Monorail Services
(SMS)
is seeking

Proposal
s from qualified

firm
s

with special experience

in
overhead structural concrete repairs

and
polymer
repairs on
con
crete
.

Firms must have at least 5 years of
experience repairing overhead concrete structures.
Disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) firms are
encouraged to respond.


This is work
is
to be performed on a time and materials reim
bursement basis

due to the varying conditions of
each repair location, with some requiring more work and others less.
T
he true nature of the repair area
will
not be fully appreciated until the
old material has been removed, and there are varying degrees o
f difficulty
in terms of access to the work locations along the guideway. These
unpredictable

aspects make the work
difficult to bid on a fixed price basis.


The work is anticipated to take place in early 2013 with additional work possible in later 2013

and in 2014.
The
approximate value of the initial phase of work is $280,000 with the maximum potential of $700,000
through the end of 2014 (refer to Scope of Work for more details).

ACKGROUND

Seattle Monorail Services, LLC (SMS), operates and maintains the Seattle Center Monorail, which is owned
by the City of Seatt
le.
The Seattle Center Monorail System was constructed in 1962 by the ALWEG Rapid
Transit Company. The trains first entered service in 1962, operating on a one
-
mile dual beam guideway
between downtown Seattle and the site of the Seattle World's Fair. The

two monorail trains (Red Train and
Blue Train) have been in nearly continuous operation since then, each logging over 1,000,000 miles of use.

The Red Train runs exclusively on the east beam, and the Blue Train on the west beam. The two beams along
with

support Piers and foundations comprise the guideway structure. The guideway structure is comprised of
approximately 64 pairs of concrete beam sections each approximately 80 ft. in length, support
ed

on concrete
piers and linked end to end so that the stru
cture extends from the Seattle Center Monorail station to the
Westlake Monorail station located at 5
th

Ave. and Pine Street. The piers are number
ed

from north to south
beginning with Pier #1 immediately outside the Seattle Center Monorail station area and

extending to Pier
#64 at the south end of the Westlake Center Monorail station. There are four additional pier sets and beam
pairs, identified as a, b, c, and d, that extend north from Pier #1 into the Seattle Center Monorail station. The
p
iers and beam

sections south of Pier #56 were replaced in 1988.

S
COPE

The scope of this project is to
make repairs to the concrete structure along the length of the Monorail
guideway
, and may also include repairs in the stations
.
The work will include repairs to the
running surfaces,
tiedown bolt retensioning, mitigation of potential seismic damage, and repairs of cracks, spalls, corrosion,
misalignment, and other disrepair.

We anticipate the work to be done in
three

phase
s
;

however, we reserve the right to

combine ph
ases, add an
additional phase, remove a phase(s), or limit

the work at any point.
Below is a brief outline of the expected
work phases
:

Page
2



Phases

Phase 1:

Th
e initial phase
will
be focused on approximately 20
-
30 locations and will include

ret
e
nsioning of ti
e
-
down bolts,
replacing the

grout surfaces of beam ends to
prevent
water intrusion
in the tie
down bolts
and provide

smooth

running surface
s (top and sides)

for the trains
, and sealing
and smoothing
previous repair areas
.
Initially the focus will be on th
e running surfaces and tie down bolts, which are at the
ends of the guideway beams.
Some locations require both top and side repairs, while some require just top or
just side repairs. At a given pier there could be as many as 10 repair patches: two top
areas (one on each
beam end approximately 3’x 6’) and as many as eight side repairs (four 6”x15” side patches on each beam
end, two upper and two lower).

Specific areas to be repai
red have been identified by SMS

some are higher priority than others and
pri
orities may change during the duration of the work

the actual number to be completed is dependent upon
the amount of time the repairs take and the overall cost
, but the first phase will
take approximately
4
-
8 weeks
in early 2013.

The initial phase will pr
imarily focus on the Red (East) guideway, but some work may also be
done on the Blue (West) guideway.
Contractor shall work with SMS Representative to develop a plan to
address these locations in a sensible manner. The work in this project is intended to

continue previous beam
repair work performed in 2006, 2010, 2011
, and 2012
.

Phase 2:

Inspections
are planned
in the beginning of 2013 to assess the concrete guideway

and
stations

for areas where aging, corrosion, or seismic mitigation may be required.

In addition to other things,
Phase 2 will likely include epoxy injection
to fill cracks on the
columns.
Repair items found during

this
inspection or
otherwise
may be included as repair items in Phase 2. This work will be scheduled
in 2013
-
2014 and will

be done to minim
ize

impact on the train operating schedule.


Phase 3:
As

funding and time allows, additional beam
running surface repair
work
,

similar to P
hase
1
,

is expected to
be performed in

2014
.


Material Removal


Removal of the existing epoxy gr
out shall be accomplished using equipment that does not adversely
affect the concrete substrate.

The removal of old epoxy can be carried out

using small hand held
equipment. These can be either electrically or pneumatically operated.

Sand blasting is not

acceptable
because of the difficulty of containing the dust emission. The

use of a handheld bush hammer is acceptable.
Removal of concrete and epoxy grout shall be

contained so that debris does not fall below the work area
.

Demolition shall be done to the

extent required to completely remove
ex
isting
delaminated
epoxy grouts

in
order to prepare for proper adhesion of new material

(in most cases, this is about 4

feet from the beam end in
most cases, but in
some
areas

could be more than 6 feet from the end o
f the beam)
. Substrate
conditions/profiles shall be as recommended by the
material

manufacturer.
D
emolished

epoxy
and

concrete

material shall be disposed of
by the Contractor at
an approved disposal facility.


Bolt Re
-
tensioning


J
oints to be

repaired

shall have their hold
-
down bolts retensioned per drawing specification.
There are two
bolt sizes, 1” and 1.5” diameter. The 1” bolts shall be tensioned to
20 kips and the 1.5” bolts to 75 kips.
Seattle Monorail Services has the hydraulic tensioning equ
ipment required to re
-
tension the bolts.
Contractor must be competent in using this device.
T
he time needed
to tension the
four
bolts
at each location
is expected to

be

approximately
one hour
. T
his work would be performed
from a scissor lift

in the str
eet and
traffic control is required in some locations along the guideway
.

Running

Surface Repairs

There are
two

types of
concrete
repairs expected: Top Repa
i
r
s

and

Si
de Repairs, which
are
briefly described
below. Sketches

of the
procedures

for top and

side running surface

repairs

can b
e found in the attached
pages (SK

Top repair
s
:



At the
top
repair areas, completely remove worn, cracked, and
/or

loose grout material on the top

of the
beams

near
t
he ends.

After material has been removed

at each location,
C
ontractor shall
visually
inspect
beam end plates

and report any questionable w
elds

to SMS Project Engineer
.
The
top
running surface

requiring re
-
grouting is

a distance of approximately
4
-
8

linear

feet from the beam segment end
.
Below
are

photo
s

showing where the grout has been removed and the bolt heads are uncovered.




Before covering the bolt heads, duct tape shall be applied to the heads of the bolts.
Duct tape around bolt
heads
helps
isolate
bolt movement from the g
rout
.




If there is a significant difference between the heights of the two metal plates at the ends of the beams, a
metal primer shall be used and the
repair

material shall cover the
steel plates and be at an equal height
between th
e two beam ends in order to have a smooth running surface.




Forms shall be made such that the

running surfaces between the ends of the beams remain planar and
smooth.

Below are

photo
s

showing
forms in place.



The bevel edge shall be smoothed by grindin
g if ridges remain after forms are removed.



Sealant shall be applied if any air pockets remain exposed (these
should be minimal) to keep water from penetrating and freezing
in the future.














Side repairs:



C
ompletely remove
old

grout material
on the

sides

patch areas at

the beam ends.
Create forms for the
side patches, pour the
methacrylate repair material into the form to cure. After removing the forms,
grind any rough edges and apply sealant.



The
side
running surface
repair areas
are appr
oximately
6”
x 15”
. There are four side
patch loc
ations at
the end of each beam: one upper and
one
lower on each side (inboard and outboard)
, so at a pier, w
h
ere
beam ends meet,
there is the potential for

8

side patches
.
S
teel plates are on the side
s

in

some places
--
t
hese metal plates can stay if they are in good condition.

Beam realignment:

After the tie
-
down
bolts have been re
-
tensioned
, and t
he running surfaces of adjacent beams
still show
significant
misalignment
,

the
beam
s

may need to
be
realigne
d

or the bearing pads replaced
. To do this, t
he
grout above the tie
-
down bolts must be removed, the tie
-
down bolts loosened, and the beam jacked up and
moved to align with the adjacent beams.

Contractor shall provide a saf
e method for jacking and adjusti
ng the
beam.
The bearing pads and grout pads shall be replaced in any location where the beam has been lifted.
Page

Once it is in alignment, the bolts shall be re
-
tensioned and the top patch shall be replaced as described for a
“Top Repair.”


Other Repairs:

There
may be a
reas along the guideway that have some spalling, corrosion, cracking
, or other disrepair

that is
not on the repair list
. When an area is noted, the SMS Project Engineer shall be notified to develop an
appropriate action plan

before any work
is performed
.



Materials

Contractor shall organize and/or purchase
all necessary material, labor, and equipment for remov
ing

existing
deteriorated
material (in most cases this is will be an epoxy
grout
)
, performing s
urface preparations, and
installing

new

patch material
.
SMS has some methacrylate material, hand tools, and hepa vacuums, which
were remaining after work was done last (beginning of 2012); these items are available for use. SMS will
allow Contractor to use two motorized service vehicles to t
ransport people to the work area. In addition,
SMS will provide the hydraulic bolt tensioning equipment required to re
-
tension tie
-
down bolts.

Running Surface
Grout Material:
Due to the lower temperatures present in the winter, g
rout and primer
material
s for the top
and side
running surface repairs
shall be rated for lower temperatures. A rapid curing
methacrylate
repair material formulated to be used for
traffic surface
s
, which can be used in temperatures as
low as
20
°F
, is UV resistant, extendable wit
h aggregate,

withstands freeze
-
thaw cycles,

and does not require
a perimeter sawcut of more than
½”
deep

is recommended.
Two
product
s

that meet these criteria
are

BASF
Degadeck Polymer Concrete

(successfully used in early 2012)
and Transpo Polymer Concret
e Patching
Material
, but o
ther products
may be proposed for approval.

The methacrylate repair material may be used
for both side and top repairs, but mixed in different proportions as recommended by the manufacturer. A
primer is required

use the one reco
mmended by the manufacturer
.


Steel overlay:

In some locations, the height of the metal plates from beam to beam are not level. In these
areas,
a
n

overlay material that adheres to steel

and concrete,

such as the Degadeck Bridge Deck Overlay
System or
Transpo
T
-
18 (alternate materials may be proposed),

may be used to
level

out the
beam end
surfaces

when they vary in height by more than 3/16”
.



Sealant:
Use the sealant recommended by the manufacturer of the methacrylate product.


Bearing pads:

If
preformed fabric
bearing pads are replaced,

they shall be "FABCO" or equal conforming to
A.A.S.H.O Article 4.274.


Minimum compressive strength perpendicular to the plane of lamination to be
10,000 psi." A company called Sorbtex makes a product that meets

this specification, but
an
other
supplier

may be proposed.



Tie
-
Down bolts, Nuts, and Washers:
The

steel is
plated
A
325.


Steel Coating:
Any bare steel (whether newly installed or as the result of grinding) shall be coated with zinc
-
rich material.
Hot dipped galvanizing is the preferred method, but zinc
-
rich steel coating may be used in the
field if it is not possible to have the parts hot
-
dipped.


Epoxy for Crack Injection:
A suitable epoxy material shall be submitted for approval to SMS Projec
t
Engineer before filling cracks.


Other Materials:
Other repair materials to be used shall be submitted to SMS Project Engineer for approval
prior to use.

Repair Loca
tion Access

and

Traffic Control

The repair areas
are
on both the Red (East) and Blu
e (West) guideways

from Seattle Center to Westlake
Center.
The repair locations can be 30+ feet high and in difficult to access places. A careful review of traffic
impact shall be done and included in the traffic control plan.
When work is being done al
ong Broad Street
and beyond Pier 56,
a uniformed police officer may be required for traffic control.



I
t is
anticipated

that
in addition to the work on the monorail beams,
some work will
likely
be performed on
the guideway columns and in the stations.

Safety Considerations

During the execution of this project, the other Monorail train will remain in daily scheduled revenue service.
This train will pass within
two
-
f
ee
t
from the contractor’s scaffolds
, at approximately five
-
minute intervals, at
speed up

to 4
0

miles per hour, during the operating period

(7:30am
-
9pm daily)
. Additionally, unshielded
high voltage (
680
VDC) conductor rails
are located
on the a
djacent guideway beam
.

Lock
-
out, tag
-
out
procedures shall be followed when deactivating a power rail
. T
he contractor shall be responsible for
developing a safety program, implementing work rules, and erecting such safety devices and barriers as
necessary to ensure worker sa
fety
.


There are some Metro bus electrification lines attached to some of the pi
ers along Broad Street and on 5
th

Avenue. These lines must either be deactivated or appropriate barriers erected if work is to take place within
10 ft of them.

All scaffold units shall be carefully inspected for safety

and stability prior to moving out of

the Seattle Center
Station. In addition, they shall be carefully
measured to ensure they will not have clearance issues with the
power rail or the other train.
Scaffold units and service vehicles shall not be overloaded.
All workers shall
be harnes
sed as required by law.

Safety of pedestrians and cars under the work areas shall be considered. Tying off tools and installing
netting under the service vehicles to keep items from falling is required.

Quality Assurance, Testing, and Acceptance

Install
ation of materials

shall be accomplished in compliance with the

manufacturer’s recommendations.
Placement during
r
ain
y conditions

shall be done such that

protection from

water intrusion

is

provided
.

Ride surfaces tolerance shall be 1/8 inch allowable vari
ation in surface smooth
n
es
s

in any 10 feet when
measured with a steel straight edge. This includes the transition from the beam concrete surface to the grout
surface and across the joint from one beam to the adjacent beam.

Areas installed that do not meet

the above requirements shall either be replaced or ground smooth to provide
a surface meeting the above surface tolerance requirements, as directed by SMS.

Voids or air pockets left after forms are removed shall be filled with a sealant.
All bare steel s
hall be coated
with a zinc
-
rich coating.

An SMS representative or designated quality assurance inspector shall, at their discretion, inspect the work.
Work discovered that does not meet the requirements of these specifications shall be
repaired

at no addi
tional
costs to SMS.
Contractor shall provide access to SMS inspector(s) at any time requested.
