Orleans Canal Interim Closure Structure.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
1 June, 2006. Lakeview, New Orleans, Louisiana. First day of hurricane season. Kewit contractors of the Gilbert Southern Group working for the US Army Corps of Engineers work on the $41.5 million Orleans Canal Interim Closure structure. The structure, designed to prevent water build up in the canal during hurricane storm surges is almost complete. Workers tighten massive bolts holding the discharge pipes together. The pumping capacity has yet to match that of pre hurricane Katrina levels, potentially leaving the affluent Lakeview neighbourhood unprotected once again.
