Gulf Intracoastal Waterway

Located on the west bank of the Mississippi River near New Orleans, LA in the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, the WCC will function as a major component of the Greater New Orleans Hurricane Storm Damage Risk Reduction System (HSDRRS). CTLGroup was retained to blend state-of-the-art concrete technology with advanced construction practices so that concrete could be easily placed, and durability achieved with almost no impact on the desired speed of construction. Large mass concrete placements were routine on this project and one of them consisted of a 9-foot-thick slab where 5,700 cubic yards of concrete was placed in 18 hours. CTLGroup provided world-class troubleshooting expertise, phase after phase, to the contractor, ensuring the delivery of a better quality structure with high-class durability.
