Spillway Road Being Repaired After Flood Season

Bonnet Carre' Spillway

Boh Brothers has the contract to repair the road running through the floodway following the opening of the Spillway in April 2008. New culverts were put in place courtesy of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The road was damaged by the billions of tons of Mississippi River water that flowed over it on its way to Lake Pontchartrain during the spring flood.
This road is heavily traveled and spares commuters the trip of adding extra miles to their journey by not having to take Airline Highway.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

I rode the new road yesterday, it was really nice and hasn't been this nice in many years. Will also make my motorcycle trips thru the spillway much more enjoyable rather than dogging all those pot holes! CC

Sometimes we don't appreaciate how much work it takes to keep our infra-structure in place.
