Project Description

DeSoto County, Mississippi

Burns Cooley Dennis, Inc. (BCD) provided daily quality control (QC) field testing services and also QC concrete compressive strength and aggregate testing for the SR 304 / I-269 construction project in DeSoto County, Mississippi. The project consisted of grading, drainage and construction of eight new bridges. Grading for the project consisted of the removal of 1.5 million cubic yards of unclassified excavation, 844,000 cubic yards of borrow excavation, and 44,000 cubic yards of excess excavation.  Drainage for the project was provided by construction of 7,000 linear feet of reinforced concrete pipe and 2,105 cubic yards of cast in-place box culvert.  The eight new bridges required 9,800 cubic yards of bridge concrete, 62,850 linear feet of piling, 23,100 linear feet of precast pre-stressed concrete girders, and 2.1 million pounds of reinforcing steel. The SR 304 / I-269 from I-55 to Malone Road will ultimately join with other state highway sections to complete the extensive and economically important I-69 corridor which will stretch from Canada to the Mexican border.
