I-49 at verot school road

Location: Lafayette Parish    
Dates: June 2016 – Present

Huval leads a group of firms providing preliminary engineering and related services to construct 2.4 miles of mainline freeway and an interchange at the intersection of I-49 South/US 90 and Verot School Road.

The project consists of an above-grade bridge structure on Verot School Road that traverses over I-49 South/US 90 mainline roadway and parallel railroad.

The project also includes one way frontage roads on both sides of the mainline roadway, a two-way collector service road east of the mainline roadway, and a new alignment of Verot School Road from the interchange to an existing bridge structure.

A roundabout will be utilized as the intersection between the reconstructed and realigned Verot School Road and South College Drive.

Huval was given Notice to Proceed in July of 2016 which began Phase 1 of the design project.

Phase 1 : Topographic Survey, SUE Services, Traffic Engineering Analysis, Conceptual Roadway Design and Bridge Design, Preliminary Geotechnical Studies, Public Meetings and Outreach.
