By the end of next month there will be 12 new light poles installed around Jackson Square. And hundreds of other street lights will be converted to LED lights. Those will finished by the end of August.

The city is not only enhancing lighting in the French Quarter, they are also doing sidewalk repair and improving drainage with surface and underground infrastructure improvements.
