The City of New Orleans Department of Public Works contractor Hard Rock Construction Co. LLC, and contractors for MCI Metro, Cox Communications, Southern Light, and AT&T have temporarily closed intersections along Bourbon Street for utility work and pavement restoration.
Several streets crossing Bourbon Street will be temporarily closed to vehicular traffic to allow utility contractors to perform underground improvements. The contractors will install temporary metal traffic plates when work is completed so normal traffic flow can be restored as soon as possible. The majority of the utility work will be done by excavating sidewalks; however, some work will impact roadway access.
The intersection closures will be minimized as much as possible. The following intersections will be affected during demolition, construction, and pavement restoration and drivers may experience detours at these intersections during the following time frames:
During this time, street parking will be impacted. Residents and visitors must adhere to any “No Parking” signs on the streets to avoid being ticketed and towed.
The work is part of the $8.9 million City-funded Bourbon St. Phase II (St. Louis – Dumaine) – St. Ann Street road repair project. The work is expected to be complete in January 2021, weather permitting.
