H.014585 I-10 Barriers: Chef Menteur Highway to I-510

NEW ORLEANS — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that work will begin on Wednesday, July 6 to install barriers along I-10 in New Orleans East from US 90 (Chef Menteur Highway) to I-510. The $8.94 million contract was awarded to Command Construction Industries, LLC.

A combination of concrete barriers and high tension cable barriers will be installed between the mainline I-10 and the service roads in each direction. The concrete barriers and the cable barrier foundations will be installed first. Once the first phase of work is complete, it is anticipated due to supply chain issues that work will pause until the cables are delivered.

The project is expected to be complete by the end of fall 2023.
