Mr. McClure is a multi-disciplined Civil/Structural Engineer with over 30 years of specialized management and design experience emphasized on various types of structures. He has managed and designed complex bridge structures, ramps, pre-stressed and post-tensioned girders, deep abutments, stormwater pump stations, towered platforms, retaining walls, and drainage outlet structures. In addition, Mr. McClure has managed and designed roadways and their drainage systems, complex hydrologic and hydraulic systems, as well as bridge hydraulics, multi-directional interchange geometry, feasibility and corridor studies, and traffic analyses of interchanges, ramps, intersections, and corridors.

Mr. McClure has worked closely with federal, state, and local agencies, along with various railroad companies to achieve the client's goals for their project, expeditiously. Examples of projects Mr. McClure has managed/designed are:

The Central Thruway is a major urban arterial located in the northeast quadrant of East Baton Rouge Parish. It is a new alignment that will connect US 100 to the densely populated area of Baton Rouge known as Central. It consists of seven (7) bridges, three (3) of which are complex girder spans with one crossing the Comite River. Nearly five (5) miles of roadway, the Central Thruway passes near and around sensitive wetland areas to minimize impact to the ecosystem.

The Pecue Lane Interchange is a new interchange along I-10 in East Baton Rouge Parish. Mr. McClure is project engineer and is providing engineering support during the NEPA process. Various interchanges are being evaluated by Mr. McClure to establish the structure set such as a SPUI (single point urban interchange) as well as various diamond interchange configurations.

The Frenchtown Road Bridge is a realignment of the existing roadway, replacement of the existing bridge to clear flood stage conditions. Design of a 250� slab span bridge along with hydrologic and hydraulic evaluation of Beaver Bayou to determine the most effective bridge opening.

US 61 Bridge over the Comite River Diversion Project. This is a bridge and roadway project being funded through the COE for the future Comite River Diversion Canal. US 61 is a four lane divided highway with twin span bridges crossing the canal. Each bridge consisted of 5-70 foot type III girder spans over a skewed channel with two continuous units for a total bridge length of 350�.
