Product Description

Digital Engineering was selected by Jefferson Parish to provide design services and project plan development for the reconstruction of the southbound lanes of Westwood Drive from the Westbank Expressway to Lapalco Boulevard. An evaluation of the existing drainage system will be performed to determine the necessary subsurface drainage improvements for current design standards. This project will be administered through LADOTD’s Road Design Section - Urban Systems Program.

All design and plan preparation will be in accordance with LADOTD requirements. In addition, the latest LADOTD’s Constructibility/ Biddability Review and QA/QC Checklist will be performed on the project plans. The scope of work for this project will include the removal and replacement of existing PCCP roadway, installation of additional subsurface drainage and modification of existing subsurface drainage, and installation of new sidewalks, handicap ramps, and driveways as needed.

In addition, a Complete Streets report will be composed which will evaluate alternatives to provide adequate access to vehicles, pedestrian, bicyclists, and transit buses.

DE will also provide traffic engineering services for detour signs. Bidding and construction will be administered through LADOTD.
