Rejuvenating Our Roads

The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) continually performs routine repairs to the city’s water and sewer pipes that lie below city streets. Once a repair is complete, the utility cut is backfilled temporarily with sand and crushed concrete. The temporary fill in these cuts often erodes, leaving uneven pavement. To make the roads safer for motorists and neighborhood residents and help SWBNO with its backlog, the Department of Public Works invested $8.6M across the city.

This repaving program will address cuts on local streets with permanent paving through one or more contracts. The City's contractor for the first contract, Fleming Construction Company, began assessments in preparation for repaving cuts on the Westbank last week. Fleming is expected to address about 550 locations as part of their contract. Residents will be notified by flyer when work is being performed on their block and given advance notice of work that would impact driveway and walkway access.


How and When Will the Work Be Completed?

In an effort to increase performance and efficiency, the work orders have been grouped geographically. The City has been divided into twelve zones. The City’s work will be performed by zones in the following sequence:  

Westbank/Zone 7  

  • Algiers Point  
  • Behrman  
  • Fischer Development  
  • McDonogh  
  • New Aurora-English Turn  
  • Old Aurora  
  • Tall Timbers-Brechtel  
  • U.S Naval Base  
  • Whitney  

East Bank/Zone 10  

  • Florida Area  
  • St. Claude  
  • St. Roch South  
  • Bywater  

East Bank/ Zone 12  

  • Holy Cross  
  • Lower Ninth Ward NE  
  • Lower Ninth Ward NW  
  • Lower Ninth Ward South

East Bank Zone 10  

  • Treme-Lafitte  
  • Seventh Ward  
  • Fairgrounds 

East Bank Zone 6  

  • French Quarter  
  • Marigny  
  • CBD  

A map of the blocks within the zones can be found here
