Hurricane Katrina completely destroyed the bridge connecting Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian and Eutaw Construction Company teamed with Granite-Archer/Western to construct a new bridge. Eutaw’s role was to construct the bridge approaches and abutments at both ends of the bridge. The project consisted of 50,000 CY of earthwork and 10,000 tons of asphalt. Eutaw’s crews placed 3,750 tons of 650# rip rap and 300# rip rap from the bridge approaches to the water’s edge. Furthermore, Eutaw excavated and deepened channels in the bay to allow for construction barges to access the bridge as well as filled in behind sheet pile bulkheads.
