The time sensitive project was awarded to TL Wallace Construction, Inc. as a thirty-one calendar day contract to repair I-10 Bridge with a bid of $5.2 million. The contract called for $100,000 per day in potential damages (each day was divided into four, twenty five thousand dollar increments). The same metric was used as the basis for determining the reward incentive. The first order of business required the removal of two tugs and one barge that were precariously positioned under the bridge before the actual bridge demolition could begin. Next, we had to demolish and remove the existing bridge which was damaged by afore mentioned vessels that were blown into the bridge by Katrina. Due to the fact that normal communications and infrastructure were nonexistent immediately after Katrina, Wallace working directly off the remaining bridge deck as well as crane mounted barges relied on portable generators, pickups as offices and cell phones for communications. All work was scheduled on a continuous 24-hour rotation. Many hard working team members contributed to this high-profile and demanding work and the associated work schedule. It took everyone from the laborer to the home office to pull this off. We then drove 5 bent of piling in the Pascagoula River basin and immediately began pouring caps. After which we erected girders and then used the stay-in-place form system for the bride decks. The six span continuous deck unit was poured in one pour with high early strength concrete. Bridge rail was started within eighteen hours after completing deck pour. The project was complete and ready for traffic forty-eight hours after completing the deck pour. Entire project was completed in twenty-one calendar days, ten days ahead of scheduled completion.
