Meetings set on future of a New Orleans expressway


NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Construction of an elevated expressway over New Orleans' busy Claiborne Avenue split neighborhoods decades ago. 

Now, the New Orleans mayor's office is asking residents of Orleans, St. Bernard and Jefferson parishes to attend a series of December public meetings to discuss the future of the Claiborne corridor - including the possibility of taking down the expressway. 

A region-wide meeting is set for Dec. 8. 

Subsequent meetings will be held the week of Dec. 10.
