I-10: FRENCH BRANCH BRIDGE – WEST PEARL RIVER BRIDGE
Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development
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.
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 proposals covered this additional cost.
