Jefferson Parish Courthouse Drainage
Burk-Kleinpeter, Inc. was contracted by the Jefferson Parish Department of Public Works to prepare plans, specifications, and roadway and railroad (Jack-and-bore) permits for installing the selected alternate improvement scenario for approximately 4,000 feet of new concrete arch pipe drain lines under an active roadway and crossing an active railway to relieve flooding in the newly-constructed Court House area in downtown Gretna.
Design included jacking and boring of large diameter drainage pipe, handling conflicts with existing utilities, and replacement of re-graded concrete and asphalt street section. BKI’s responsibility also included development of a pre-design Engineering report to analyze alternative solutions and costs for installing the drain line. Traffic engineering was required to allow traffic to move in and around construction. Construction administration and resident inspection services were also included in BKI’s scope of work for this project.
