Rail Track Repair and Maintenance:
The general scope of work consists of replacing approximately 30% (500 cross-ties) of the cross-ties along the Lead (EAST) and Spur (WEST) rail tracks that run into the Port's terminal facility located at 800 Youngs Road, Morgan City, Louisiana. In addition, the work will include pulling joints together and installing bolts, adding ballast where needed and making necessary adjustments to the rail switches.
Aggregate Loading/Unloading Area:
The general scope of work consists of the construction of 12" thick aggregate storage area and loading zone together with installing 60" and 72" diameter reinforced concrete culverts in existing ditch/drainage canal, clearing and grubbing, excavation, grading, geotextile fabric, catch basins and other incidental items of work in connection therewith. The loading area is approximately 500' long and will include access driveway and adequate turning radius for maneuverability.
East Side Dock Expansion:
The general scope of work consists of the construction of steel foundation piles, reinforced concrete pile bents and wharf deck, a steel sheet pile wall, concrete paving, timber fender system, and other incidental items of work in connection therewith. The proposed additional wharf deck area is approximately 300' long X 40' wide and will include a 70-ton load capacity on the western end to match the load capacity of the existing dock. The transient loading zone will be paved utilizing 16" thick concrete above 12" thick stone base course. The same design criteria used for the initial extension will be used for this project.
Youngswood Yard Rehabilitation:
Heavy construction including excavating 28 inches of materials and installing 16 inches of 610 limestone and 12 inches of granular fill placed. Subgrade proof rolled with 20-ton rubber tire vehicle. Subsurface drainage of 15” diameter RCP and catch basins, slope area to drain and other incidental work in connection therewith.
Western Dock Expansion - Phase 3A:
The general scope of work proposed in this project request consists of a number of elements: the purchase of the two western adjacent properties; raising the properties approximately 5 feet (to match the top of the adjacent existing dock) by beneficially using dredged material resulting from adjacent maintenance dredging in the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway; construction of a new steel sheet pile bulkhead and anchor system to confine the dredged material; construction of a new, reinforced, concrete pile-supported wharf extension structure, concrete paved cargo staging area; timber fender and mooring system, and other incidental and ancillary items of work in connection therewith. The proposed additional wharf deck area is approximately 444’ long X 80’ wide and will include same load capacity as the existing dock. The length of the bulkheaded area is approximately 555’ long, thus adding a total nominal new dockage length of 1,000’ to the overall terminal facility. The cargo staging area will be paved utilizing 16”-thick concrete and 12”-thick crushed aggregate base course pavement section and will add approximately 5 acres of additional cargo staging area to the overall terminal facility. The same design criteria used for the initial dock extension will be used for this project.
