DE is the design engineer for the St. Bernard Avenue Improvements (Filmore to Robert E. Lee) project that served as the backdrop for a press conference given late December by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Cedric Grant, Executive Director of S&WB, that highlighted the City’s 2016 integrated infrastructure accomplishments.
The clip below is the press conference. Standing behind the Mayor and City officials are DE's Kurt Evans, Frank Liang, and Norman Bordes.
Our work on the St. Bernard Avenue project included design for major reconstruction of the roadway including installation of new subsurface utilities (water, sewer, and drainage), concrete roadway paving, sidewalks, driveways, and ADA compliant ramps. The newly restored travel lanes also include a 5’ wide dedicated bike lane each direction, pedestrian crosswalk striping, and an on-street parking lane. Modifications were made to the traffic signal system at Robert E. Lee to facilitate the detours required during construction.
DE administered construction administration and resident inspection during construction phase for this project that was completed the end of December 2016.
