LA Contracting Enterprise, LLC is the contractor.  This project will elevate the  levee crossing LA Hwy 3235 in Larose to the current height of the levee on the southbound side, and a gate structure on the northbound side, thus eliminating the need to place Hesco baskets across the highway during storm events that require a complete closure of the levee system.
