Joint venture tackles $2.4 billion infrastructure project
A joint venture of Parsons Brinckerhoff, The LPA Group Incorporated and Gulf Engineers and Consultants has been selected by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development in the USA to assist with the implementation of a US$2.4 billion infrastructure programme. Created in 1989, the Louisiana programme is called TIMED (Transportation Infrastructure Model for Economic Development), and is intended to promote better connectivity throughout the state by expanding several two-lane US and state highways to four lanes. Currently there are 105 individual highway and bridge projects to be completed.
