Our culture of unwavering attention to detail and lasting commitment to safety and quality, along with our use of leading-edge technology and sophisticated machinery give us a unique ability to provide our customers with superior materials, equipment, and end results.

For nearly 70 years and counting, providing safe, high efficiency, high production premium asphalt services in both public and private works of all sizes, has been the Barriere signature. Whether it’s a government agency, a business, school, retail facility, or an industrial facility, an investment in high-quality pavement adds safety and value. Hot-mix and warm-mix asphalt developments in recent years have led to significant improvements in roadway construction and rehabilitation and lifecycle costs. Asphalt has become an ideal selection for busy highways, heavy traffic, and reduced maintenance costs, providing the most efficient way to extend the useful life of public and private roadways and parking facilities.

Barriere operates state-of-the-art asphalt production facilities on both the North and South Shores of Lake Pontchartrain, and Baton Rouge. Our brand new Baton Rouge asphalt facility came on line in March 2016, significantly expanding our reach and ability to serve and satisfy customers in the greater Baton Rouge market. Our asphalt plants have been repeatedly recognized with the National Asphalt Pavement Association’s (NAPA) Diamond Achievement Award for environmental excellence. Our plants are also certified by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). Our asphalt products meet or exceed Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LDOTD) and parish requirements.

Our greatest resource, our highly experienced people, include an OSHA-trained competent person on every crew, and our commitment to safety and excellence has been recognized time and again. Our industrial teams are PICS and ISNetworld-compliant, and our Total Recordable Incidence Rate (TRIR) and Experience Modification Rate (EMR) statistics consistently meet industry requirements for entry into industrial facilities of all kinds.

Fluor Technip Integrated contracted Barriere Construction to complete a $36.5 million reconstruction and widening of Louisiana Highway 379 to support and facilitate the 2.5-mile transport of large prefabricated modules from the construction dock to Sasol’s Lake Charles Chemical Project Site.

Building a public road for a private industrial customer would normally present significant challenges. On this project, Barriere’s experienced team stayed focused on our customer’s needs, anticipated potential conflicts, and engineered solutions that allowed us to complete this complex roadway safely ahead of schedule and below approved budget. Planning for safety, quality, and efficiency in advance of project execution is a philosophy that follows our mission and values. Our record of excellence is no accident. It speaks to our ability to consistently deliver solutions to our customers – differentiating us as a contractor, employer, and corporate citizen.

Barriere’s asphalt roadway and infrastructure improvements ensured a safe, smooth, and long-lasting foundation for heavy hauls and the Westlake community.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) contracted Barriere Construction Company, LLC to complete a $40 million road rehabilitation project to resurface almost 10 miles of interstate highway in eastern St. Tammany Parish, replacing worn faulted concrete pavement on Interstate 10 from the West Pearl River Bridge to the French Branch Bridge. This section of interstate had not received many substantive improvements since the 1960’s and presented complicated issues resulting from poor subbase and water intrusion.

From a safety perspective, one of the biggest and most important challenges involved the nature of the project itself: the convergence of three major heavily trafficked interstates (I-10, I-59 and I-12) and a volume of approximately 100,000 automobiles and trucks per day.

The French Branch project challenged Barriere and DOTD to construct a safer and more efficient highway by eliminating excessive roadway irregularities and wear and tear on vehicles. Barriere crews worked to replace the existing poorly conditioned subbase as well as reconstruct five corresponding off-ramps with the highest level of safety and without a single lane closure infraction.

In winning the project Barriere proposed a 360-day timeline, which was 315 days faster than other competitors’ proposals. Although additional work was added to the contracted scope, Barriere’s use of innovative tools such as drone surveying and intensive scheduling enabled Barriere to complete the project in just 307 days (71 days ahead of the adjusted timeline).

Over and above the initial scope of work, DOTD asked Barriere to add additional guardrail in places where the existing structures did not meet required specifications, due to inconsistent road leveling. Milling and asphalt leveling were also included to fix the substandard slopes on the project. Barriere completed other minor change orders including the adjustment of ITS boxes and the relocation of multiple signs. In total the client added $745,000 of work to the project, but the savings Barriere generated through Value Engineering and expert innovation more than covered the additional cost.

Barriere produced and paved nearly 80,000 tons of asphalt (4,700 truck loads) for a once-in-a-career project for NOLA Motorsports consisting of a 1.3-mile go-karting track, a 2.75-mile road course (with a future additional 2.6-mile track), and a 7.5-acre autocross pad, as well as numerous parking lots, roads, and work areas. Barriere worked with one of the asphalt industry’s best engineers, Brian D.
