NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Crews have started work on the last phase of the new Regional Transit Authority streetcar project. 

The RTA says the streetcar line along North Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue is on schedule for completion in the fall.

Some traffic lanes will be closed as a contractor works to tie in new water lines at the intersection of Canal and Rampart Streets.  

Roadway milling on North Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue should be completed next week.  The contractor will begin the asphalt overlay on the streets later in June.
