Quaternary Resource Investigations (QRI) is excited to announce the start of the long awaited GIWW SW Guide Wall Replacement Project at the Industrial Canal Lock/Inner Harbor Navigation Canal for the US Army Corps of Engineer’s New Orleans District

QRI and its subcontractor Couvillion Group, recently demolished the vintage 1960’s pile clusters to create access for marine equipment and material storage barges behind the existing guidewall. The six 29x12x11.5’ support structures, steel piles and heavy lift equipment will be making its way to the project site in the coming days.

 Pictured are Jady New, QRI Project Manager, QRI Site Superintendent, Scott Avanzino, and Couvillion Group Project Manager Daryl Couvillion with the support structures in the background. The project is expected to wrap up this fall.
