Basin bridge work starts in February

Lafayette – Expect some delays on the Atchafalaya

Basin bridge starting in February.

Bill Fontenot Jr., district engineer administrator for the state Department of Transportation and Development, announced a $679,921 contract has been awarded for repairs to the I-10 bridge deck in St. Martin Parish.

It’s mostly spot repairs to the deck and shoulder where they have been damaged by previous incidents, he said.

“The contractor has been issued a work order start date of Jan. 5, 2009,” Fontenot said.

“Contract provisions allow for a 30-day assembly period, therefore actual field work may not be obvious until February 2009.”

Lane closures will be announced.

The project is expected to be completed within 30 working days, weather permitting, Fontenot said.

The low bidder was American Contracting & Service, Inc., of Jeffersonville, Ind.
