Farmsite Road Canal Crossing Culvert

Violet, Louisiana



MSMM performed civil and structural design (including schematic, preliminary, and final design), hydraulic modeling, survey services, and construction management for the replacement of an undersized culvert at Farmsite Road and Green Avenue Canal in Violet, LA. The project wrapped up construction in October of 2020 and consists of a pre-cast arch culvert bridge system.

MSMM developed a hydraulic analysis of the location including analysis of existing canal flows, existing culvert configuration flows, and optimum flow allowances to account for a large watershed event. Following the completion of the hydraulic analysis, MSMM provided updated information to FEMA for refinement of the project worksheet and used the hydraulic data to determine which Arch Culvert bridge system was best applicable to design. MSMM then designed the pre-cast Arch Culvert bridge replacement, which was approved by FEMA. The project was bid in the Winter of 2019 and MSMM continued to provide construction management and engineering during construction.
