Project Description

CONTRACT NAME: WBV-44 Whitney Barataria Pumping Station Floodwall

LOCATION: Plaquemines Parish, LA

APPROXIMATE CONTRACT VALUE: $7,776,000

OWNER: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

Scope of Work

The purpose of this project for the US Army Corps of Engineers was to remove the existing sheet pile flood protection and install a new concrete floodwall.   The 1200 linear foot reinforced concrete floodwall consisted of a sheet pile cut off wall, H-pile supported base slabs, and T-walls. Embankment and scour protection was installed on both the flood and protected side of the floodwall. Finally, dolphin structures were constructed at the edge of the intake basin canal, to protect the pumping station from incoming vessels.

This project had a 347 calendar days contract duration and was completed on time in lieu of a three-month delay due to original survey issues that the client had to resolve. During the three-month delay, Cycle had to work outside of the originally scheduled sequence in order to keep the project moving. Ultimately, Cycle worked on both the north and south sides of the project simultaneously in order to complete the project ahead of schedule.
