LA 930 Value Engineering around pipelines

Project # MA-18-06 | updated September 6, 2019

This study was an analysis and re-design of a small, 1,500 foot portion of the “LA 930 Widening and Safety Improvements Project”, developed by LA DOTD. The study allowed avoidance of $2M in pipeline relocation costs.

A value engineering (VE) recommendation will be submitted to DOTD for concurrence before the road is transferred to Ascension Parish with Road Transfer Fee Credits. The image below illustrates the location of this project.
