PetroFuels Floating Dock and Pipe Rack Project
About this Project
Project Type: Marine and PILING
Boh Bros. found itself battling high river levels and unseen obstructions during construction of a floating barge dock and associated pipe rack in Mt. Airy, Louisiana. In the end, the terminal owner and the operator, PetroFuels, significantly boosted their dock capacity to accommodate four 54- by 300-foot barges at one time. The terminal, situated just south of the Gramercy Bridge, ships oil, liquid asphalt and light oil to destinations along the Gulf of Mexico and Eastern Seaboard. Boh constructed pipe racks around existing terminal tanks and set a 20-foot wide structural steel pipe bridge across Hwy 44 to the new floating barge dock. Boh also drove mooring and berthing piles, and set a 100-foot long articulating truss for the new dock.
Avondale Marine Project
Boh Bros. assisted Avondale Marine in rebuilding Dock No. 2 so that Host can use the dock’s existing pile–supported ship ways to construct a suspended roadway. Once operational, trucks will be able to carry heavy loads from dock to land, and vice versa, as the roadway will have a 100-ton capacity.
Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Safety Bays CMAR Project
The Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission (GNOEC) sought to improve the safety of the 23.83 mile Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridges by adding shoulders and emergency pullover areas on both spans. The GNOEC chose a Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) delivery method for a solution to meet their stated goals.
