Drivers warned of more road repairs in Uptown New Orleans

New Orleans, La. - More neighborhoods get a reminder about the price of progess, when it comes to street repairs in Uptown New Orleans.

Orange cones and detour signs will go up soon along three more busy streets: Freret, from Louisiana Avenue to Jefferson Avenue, along with Nashville Avenue from South Claiborne to Fontainebleau, as well as Fontainebleau from Broad Street to Nashville Avenue.  

DOTD announced crews will get to work next month on the $3.3 million project.

It's part of a comprehensive effort to upgrade more than sixty roadway segments in Jefferson parish and New Orleans.

DOTD's "Paths to Progress" will host a neighborhood informational meeting to discuss the street segments that will be affected.

The meeting will be on Tuesday, July 30th, at 6 p.m. on the Tulane University campus. Citizens can go to the Lavin-Bernick Center on McAlister Drive.

Repairs will include resurfacing, pavement patching, repairing curbs and installing ADA-compliant accessible ramps.

Business owners, elected officials and all interested residents are encouraged to attend the informational meeting to find out more about the schedule and construction events that will take place in their area.

Project personnel will be on hand to provide the latest details of the upcoming street repairs and a construction schedule. The meeting will commence with a brief presentation, followed by an opportunity to ask questions and view project maps and other materials.

With a combined investment of over $90 million, Paths to Progress is a collaborative effort between the Federal Highway Administration, Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, New Orleans Regional Planning Commission and the City of New Orleans.
