The City of New Orleans, Department of Public Works and Sewerage & Water Board began a full reconstruction project on Bourbon Street from St. Louis to Dumaine streets (500-800 blocks) on September 17, 2018. Work is occurring sequentially from the 500 – 800 blocks, with ONLY one block fenced off and closed to vehicular traffic at a time throughout construction. All businesses along this corridor will remain open and accessible throughout construction. The $9.5 million cost-shared project, which is anticipated to run through June 2019, was designed by Mott McDonald, LLC and will be constructed by Hard Rock Construction, LLC. Project partners include Entergy Electric, Entergy Gas, Cox Communications and AT&T.

Hard Rock Construction, LLC will continue making an emergency sewer line repair in the intersection of Bourbon and St. Ann streets on Saturday, September 22. Crews expect to complete this activity on Sunday, September 23.
Upcoming Intersection and 500 Block Closure
Beginning on Monday, September 24 (weather permitting), Hard Rock Construction, LLC will re-route river bound traffic from the 500 block of Bourbon St. between St. Louis and Toulouse streets.
