The $5.4 million Jackson Street Bridge rehabilitation project began in September and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. This project involves repairing the bridge’s mechanical and electrical systems, widening sidewalks, installing handrails and performing structural deck repairs.

Gene Couvillion (47) has worked with Cecil D. Gassiott Contractors to provide an assortment of products including bar supports, dowel baskets and geotextile fabric just to name a few. This project has been a joint effort between our Alexandria and Baton Rouge location to also provide the overhang bracket system for this jobsite.

Thanks to Gene and all the employees in Baton Rouge and Alexandria for their hard work on this project.
