French Branch

Demolition and reconstruction of Interchange under live traffic.


“Barriere: Sasol / FTI” uses timelapse and ground-based footage and an interview with a project manager to tell the story of this massive road-widening and strengthening project. The project also included the installation of rotating mast arms (the first in Louisiana), to make possible the largest foreign investment of all time in the state of Louisiana.


Come on a ride to see the reconstruction of 37 J-Turns over an 11-mile stretch of US 90! With over 80 dedicated employees, we completed the project in 193 days – beating the 380-day timeline by 50%! Great job team and a special thanks to the City of Patterson.
