Bridge Cleaning Over Highway

Any have any experience? This would include the whole bridge…top, underneath, sides, etc… will need a lift. My main question is traffic control. How much does that cost? Do I sub a company out to control traffic? Thanks in advance

I would want a full hazmat suit with all the pigeon poo.

Check with the City, I’m sure you’ll need a permit no matter where you live. Feel free to introduce yourself since you’re new here. The introduction page is pinned at the top of the threads


I worked for a company taking down trees a while back. We used to have to pay an off duty cop to block traffic for us. Maybe check with the local authorities and see what they can do

Didn’t think about asking police :+1: this highway is 50mph so I am assuming it would need to be warning/caution signs further down the road etc…I am just curious on An estimated cost for traffic control/equipment to help with bidding

I imagine every state or county has different regulations when it comes to traffic control. Kind of like what @12_B mentioned above. Our tree companies are able to have their own guys do traffic control but he said theirs have to hire off duty cops.

I would put a call in to the county highway department or even a local blacktop company and talk to them just to see what’s required. Maybe you can team up with a local company to get it down. Let them handle the traffic and you handle the cleaning. Directing traffic on a highway is no joke.

Thanks for the reply, your right…it is no joke and that’s why I am taking it very seriously. I will obviously contact the county/DOT for permits and also contact local asphalt companies and see what kinda knowledge they can throw my way. Thanks for the help guys!


Hes not joking, had a painting contractor spend 8 months in the hospital and have to learn how to walk again after getting some kind of disease from bird droppings while up in a homeowners attic. PPE is super important when working with bird waste.

Histoplasmosis is what he got,
