Project Completed! Crossett Port Dolphin

McClelland Consulting Engineers, Inc. (MCE) has recently completed the Crossett Port Dolphin project in Crossett, Arkansas.  The design required a reinforced concrete abutment structure at the Crossett Port.  The structure was constructed for barges to safely enter the port without damaging the existing structure while loading and unloading any material.  This project is owned by the City of Crossett while being overseen and maintained by the Crossett Economic Development Foundation (CEDF).  The project was funded through the Southeast Arkansas Economic Development District (SEAEDD), along with the Delta Regional Authority (DRA).  MCE coordinated with the owner, Mayor Scott McCormick, and a representative from SEAEDD, Alan Lorince, and a representative from CEDF, Mike Smith, throughout the duration of the project.  The contractor, Ideal Construction Co., was given a construction time frame of 120 days, and completed the project well within the allotted time.  The port was allowed to accept material from barges during construction, so MCE’s coordination between the port officials, the Contractor, and the barge’s schedule was critical.
