Henderson, NV I-15/I-215 Interchange Mural
Henderson, NV United States | 2007
"The City of Findlay, Ohio wanted to erect a welcome sign along an overpass above I-75 leading into the city. The grand entryway consisted of giant steel letters spelling out ""Welcome to Findlay"" and ""Flag City USA."" The City of Findlay received permission from the Ohio DOT to put up the signs along the interstate, but there was question as to which party would be responsible for maintaining the project. With the question of responsibility in the air, a low-maintenance coating was preferred. When the project began, the engineers and planners were educated about galvanized coatings and learned there were galvanizing kettles large enough to accommodate the letters and artwork.
12 tons were galvanized and then painted for aesthetic appeal.
As long-term maintenance was a key issue in specifying the project, hot-dip galvanizing was selected for its corrosion performance. The letters and artwork, totaling 12 tons, were galvanized and then painted for aesthetic appeal. The addition of paint to the galvanized coating will increase the corrosion performance, guaranteeing the sign will be an attractive welcome to everyone visiting Findlay for many generations. "
