First Alert Traffic: Canal, Poydras Street repairs to cause traffic detours

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - - If you need to get anywhere near the foot of Canal Street you may want to consider chartering a different mode of transportation.

Drivers will want to avoid Canal Street and Convention Center Blvd until further notice as repair work to the street will continue to cause detours in the area.

Also, drainage work on Poydras Street will reduce the Riverbound side to one lane for the next seven to 10 days.

Alternate routes are advised.
