Gulf Intercoastal Water Way (GIWW) – New Orleans, LA

Rivers & Waterways

The origins of steel sheet piling stem from the desire to navigate and control the waterways. The first large-scale sheet pile project was for the lock construction at Black Rock Harbor in 1908. Now, over 100 years later, engineers and contractors are using steel piles and sheet piles to take full advantage of inland waterways. The lock and dam projects of the early 20th century are being upgraded and repaired using flat sheet piles. River terminals are being constructed to transfer goods between rivers, rails and highways. The unmatched product range of Skyline’s Z-shaped sheet piles for terminal walls and large diameter pipe for river dolphins makes Skyline the resource of choice for projects on inland waterways.
