Terracon was contracted by Quality Enterprise USA, Inc. for three important flood control projects directed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The LPV 104.02 London Avenue Project was designed to provide hurricane protection and storm proofing for the existing Seabrook Bridge and surrounding areas from storm surge flow from Lake Pontchartrain. The testing included vibration monitoring, soil density testing, and concrete testing associated with construction of new T-Walls.
Terracon completed full-time vibration monitoring during demolition of existing structures, driving of sheet piles, and H-pile installation for the construction of the T-Walls, as well as a new levee access ramp near the University of New Orleans. The new ramp was needed to provide direct access for vehicular traffic from Lakeshore Drive to the UNO campus. Terracon performed soil density tests and concrete tests for the new T-Walls and the new access roadway.
