The City of New Orleans, Department of Public Works announced that full reconstruction work on the 800 block of St. Ann Street between Bourbon and Dauphine streets has shut down indefinitely due to high water levels in the Mississippi River. Currently, the City has a waiver to work up to 15 feet; the project will resume once the water levels drop below 15 feet at the Carrollton Gauge.
The entire project is scheduled to be completed in late June, early July 2020, weather permitting; however, the schedule may shift depending on the duration of the delay. The fencing around the block will remain in place during this shut down and the roadway closed to vehicular traffic; sidewalks will remain open to pedestrian traffic.
To date, crews have installed a new, up-sized 24-inch drain line on one side of the street and are currently working on the new sewer line. Remaining work includes completing the new sewer line, water line, drain line on the other side of the street, roadway restoration and new sidewalks.
Questions about this project or the Capital Improvement Program should be directed to 504.658.ROAD (7623) or email@example.com.
