This project involved expanding the Inland Rivers Marine Terminal Storage facility and adding electrical lighting service to the site. The $4.5-million expansion also added 3.5 acres to the terminal, allowing the port to handle and hold an additional 700 containers.
The project includes the addition of a 17,541-square-yard, heavy-duty pavement storage area adjacent to the existing storage facility and the installation of two high-mast lights. The pavement is 16 inches thick with double No. 9 rebar mats.
The project was a joint venture between the Port of Greater Baton Rouge and the Port Construction and Development Priority Program through the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.
