Ouachita River Bridge

Harrisonburg, LA

Harrisonburg, LA

Louisiana Department of Transportation has begun construction of a new bridge in Harrisonburg, Louisiana. The bridge was first built in 1932 and has been considered in “poor standing” for some time. The bridge sees 1,900 motorists each day and will continue to be a vital part of the area’s population and farming community.

Our Alexandra branch is working closely with Gilchrist Construction supplying the chemicals, curing blankets, small tools and other materials for this $47M project.

Fort Worth’s New West 7th Street Bridge

Fort Worth, Texas

Fort Worth, Texas

The $26 million West 7th Street Bridge was completed in November 2013, with work beginning in January 2012 and onsite work starting May 2013. This project replaces a century old bridge with a wider driving surface and wider pedestrian walkways. It is also the world’s first precast network arch bridge which allowed for completion in less than 150 days as opposed to a traditional design which would have taken over a year.

Steve Holley (24) and Mike Svob (24) worked with Sundt to provide a full range of products including chemicals, epoxies, fasteners, tools, lumber, turnbuckles, and braces. This project was a joint effort between our Fort Worth branch and our North Texas Rental location.

Thanks to Steve and Mike for their hard work on this project.

This project has been a joint effort between our Alexandria and Baton Rouge location to also provide the overhang bracket system for this jobsite.
