GENERAL DEGAULLE CROSSING

THE PROJECT

Location: New Orleans, LA I Value: $20,092,796 I Man Hours: 44,998 

In partnership with the New Orleans Sewage & Water Board, Barriere demolished each cross street, dug out the canal and installed 55’ wide and 11’ tall double barrel concrete box culvert, and rebuilt 6 cross streets over the recently re-engineered canal running on Gen. DeGaulle. Crews worked in a large drainage ditch located between a set of sand dams that kept water out of the work area and routinely fought New Orleans’ weather to keep the work site dry. We completed the difficult project with less than .001% of rework, saving $1.2 million.
