408 Public Notices

Valero Refining Meraux, LLC proposes to install a pipe bridge near Mississippi River Levee Station 262+60 to replace an existing grade level crossing for multiple pipelines at the same location.  The installation would include concrete footing foundations on both sides of the levee, steel structural columns and a bridge supported by the foundations.  The proposed action would involve excavation and removal of 16 pipelines and one electrical duct bank from the levee section to be relocated to the overhead pipe bridge structure.  That would allow the pipes to cross the levee outside of the levee design profile while maintaining vehicular access with a 22.7-foot vertical clearance above the levee crown.  Existing pipelines on the river side and protected side of the levee would not be altered and would remain on existing supports.
