WSP in Action

The Transportation Infrastructure Model for Economic Development (TIMED) Program is Louisiana’s largest transportation program in the state’s history. The ongoing program designated 16 specific transportation projects, including widening state highways, improvements and/or new construction of major bridges, and funding improvements to both the Port of New Orleans and Louis Armstrong International Airport. In 2002, LA DOT took two major steps to accelerate the $4.6 billion program: it hired a private management joint venture, led by WSP, and changed the program’s financing strategy to a bond-financed program.

Both measures shaved 20 years off the anticipated schedule. Working in partnership with the agency, WSP’s financial planning, public outreach, design management and construction engineering services have kept the award-winning program on track and successfully managed the massive disruptions caused by Hurricane Katrina.
