Transportation Construction Projects

Our projects range from the smallest private parking lots to the largest interstate rehabilitations. Barriere has built highway projects for parish public works, local municipalities, local Departments of Transportation and Development (DOTD), and private and industrial customers across the Gulf South. We have the resources to complete any job safely, on time, and on budget.

I-10: French Branch Bridge – West Pearl River Bridge

This $40 million road rehabilitation presented many challenges for our crew and the DOTD, as well as for the traveling public. We had to complete construction on a 10-mile stretch of highway—and do it safely and on a tight deadline. Which we did, 71 days ahead of schedule. Our efficiency saved the DOTD over $200,000.


When maintenance of infrastructure is too long neglected, complicated problems may result. In the case of highways, these problems often have to do with a poor subbase and water intrusion. We build safer and more efficient highways by eliminating excessive roadway irregularities, thus reducing wear and tear on vehicles. We can replace any subbase in poor condition, and we can reconstruct off-ramps as safely as possible and with as few lane closures as possible.

For our aviation projects, Barriere offers a full-time safety manager onsite at no cost to our customers, reinforcing Barriere’s commitment to safety and quality. We use GPS surveying and machine controls in our earth work and utility operations, and we use 3-D controls in our paving and milling operations. Our GPS systems enable us to project pay and design quantities before the project has even broken ground, and we pass on the savings directly to our customers.
