Construction continues on the first of three New Orleans East bridges. Construction contractor, Durr Heavy Construction, LLC, began work on the Morrison Canal Bridge at Morrison Road and Mayo Road in late May.
The $753K city-funded project also includes refurbishing the Citrus Canal Bridge at Lake Forrest and the Benson Canal Bridge at Lake Forrest.
The scope of work for this project may include: repairing damaged bridge pilings; replacing decking, beams, and other structural components; and installing permanent pavement striping and signage.
Weather permitting, the project is slated for completion in November 2019.
