New Orleans Convention Center Linear Park

Durr is working with Landis Construction Company on the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (NOCC) Linear Park project. With over 1 million square feet of exhibit space, the NOCC is an essential backbone for business and tourism in the city. The Convention Center’s District Development Project aims to improve its outside areas with green space, area for outdoor events, and public art displays.

Durr’s work site spans Convention Center Blvd. from Poydras St. to Henderson St. and includes the pouring of over 15,000 cubic yards of concrete, including sidewalks, curbs, and ADA-compliant ramps. The existing roadway has been demolished and the updated roadway is now accessible to public traffic. In addition, new bus and ride-share terminals have been constructed and are now operational.

Durr is currently working on the “pedestrian park” portion of this job, including building the walkway profile, pouring concrete, and installing pavers for the outside area. For this portion of work, a series of new drain inlets and catch basins are being installed throughout the park side. In addition, Durr is running a new 8” waterline while relocating multiple water hydrants in the surrounding area. The anticipated completion date for Durr’s work on this project is Fall 2020.
