New Orleans bridge project gets award

Text size: A A

At a Feb. 19 ceremony, the American Institute of Concrete Louisiana Chapter presented the Huey P. Long Bridge Widening Project with an Award of Excellence. The award was given in recognition of outstanding and innovative use of concrete products in Phase I – main support (piers) widening.

The main objective of Phase I was to widen the bridge substructure to accommodate for the attachment and addition of truss panels as well as 43 ft of bridge deck on each side of the existing structure.

The substructure was modified and widened using reinforcing steel and concrete encasement around the four existing Mississippi River piers and one land pier. In the end, an estimated 16,544 cu yds of concrete were used.

The entire project is scheduled to be completed by 2013.
