Barriere only bidder for I-10 work

The state is preparing to spend millions of dollars repaving Interstate 10 in Kenner and the Airport Access Road.

The Times-Picayune reports Barriere Construction Co. this week entered the only bid to overlay the highway between the St. Charles Parish line and Williams Boulevard.

Barriere's bid — almost $4.8 million — came in about $500,000 above the state's Department of Transportation and Development estimate of almost $4.2 million.

Construction usually begins two to four months after bids are opened.

Another project in the pipeline is rehabbing Airport Access Road, which connects I-10 to Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

The state's estimated cost for the rehab is between $1 million and $2.5 million. Bids are scheduled to be opened July 25.
