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.
