This $14 million contract is a major component of the Baton Rouge Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) Program. The project involves the construction of 16,900 linear feet of gravity sewer and 3,000 linear feet of sewer force main ranging in size from 8” to 42” and 6” to 12”, respectively. In addition to these segments, Eutaw Construction will be required to install over 90 manholes. The project also includes 12 jacked and bored segments for a total of 1,500 linear feet ranging from 24” to 60”. The project will necessitate the need for approximately 67,000 tons of aggregate backfill and bedding.
This project will increase sewer capacities in some of Baton Rouges most heavily populated areas and in neighborhoods that have seen rapid population growth since the early 2000’s.
