DOTD – WPG Road Transfer Program – 2.6 miles of La Hwy 438 is paved. Repairs to the DOTD Bridge on the Hwy 438 segment are pending a credit audit by DOTD designers.
Sidewalk Rehabilitation Project – Design plans were reviewed during a “plan – in – hand” field visit and walk through … all ADA compliance concerns were addressed… comments and designs that conform with the ADA format will be incorporated in the final plans. This downtown Franklinton sidewalk project is funded by a DOTD grant
Rayburn Correctional Center – a bridge over a tributary to Scarborough’s Creek was re-built by the DPW crew. This project is made possible through an Intergovernmental Agreement between the Louisiana Department of Corrections and WPG.
24 New Culvert Structures -A contract to replace single span bridges / drainage structures was signed by President Thomas and Skip Magee, owner & President of Magee Excavation & Development.
The 24 new drainage structures are located throughout the Parish; they are designed to improve the conveyance of storm water drainage across parish roads and mitigate flooding. The construction project is valued at $ 2.03 million made available through 100% funding from FEMA and Louisiana GOHSEP. The construction is scheduled to begin in July of this year and scheduled for completion within
For construction locations please see attached list.
Two Shot Roadway Surface Treatment - Answer to a commonly asked question…
Can asphalt / 2 shot paving be constructed in the rain or after rain events?
Asphalt paving cannot be completed while it is raining.
Also, Paving must also be delayed if it has rained and the clay / gravel base is saturated. It may take 48 to 72 Hours for Clay / Gravel base material to sufficiently dry out before applying CRS2 emulsion
While WPG crews would like to be able to complete jobs during any weather conditions, CRS2 emulsion is a bituminous product mix that contains oils. These oils repel water, and laying CRS2 emulsion while it is actively raining or atop saturated clay/gravel will cause unintended results that affect the quality of the project.
The repelling of oil from water means that cracks or holes may form in a newly installed “Two Shot” road resurfacing. These cracks can quickly turn into potholes or product separation.
The damage and quality concerns related to placing CRS2 emulsion in wet conditions can be observed immediately. The oil that separates from the 2 shot roadway treatment as it repels water will rise to the top of the newly surfaced road and will cause loss of structural integrity to the finished product.
