QRI determined there was a need to address site access to GIWW project site as the original plan called for pedestrian traffic to utilize the existing levee system for entrance and egress.  An existing metal gangway with handrails was converted into a wooden staircase after being designed, constructed and installed by QRI Construction Section personnel.  Once securely in place the new staircase treads were coated with non-slip paint thereby reducing safety hazards.
