The Mississippi River subsided below 13 feet on the Carrollton gauge, which means Entergy’s proactive, accelerated effort ahead of Phase II of the city’s French Quarter Infrastructure Improvements Project has begun. Crews started improving utility infrastructure in the 500-800 blocks of Bourbon Street this week.
