Fleming Construction Co., LLC crews, in close collaboration with the Sewerage and Water Board New Orleans, continue water line tie-ins throughout the Lower Ninth Ward Northeast Group B infrastructure improvement project area. Crews tied the new water lines into the community’s existing water supply on Tonti, North Rocheblave, St. Maurice and Tupelo streets in January/February. Residents will continue to be notified of work that will impact vehicular access and / or cause disruptions to their utilities.
This $5.8M project was designed by Neel-Schaffer, Inc. and is being constructed by Fleming Construction Co., LLC.
Construction started in June 2020 and is expected to be complete in fall 2021, weather permitting. This scope of this full-depth reconstruction project varies block by block but may include the following:
- Replacing damaged underground water, sewer and drainage lines;
- Repaving the roadway;
- Replacing damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons; and
- Installing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant curb ramps at intersections.
Information about this project was made available at a public pre-construction meeting on May 5, 2020. The presentation can be found here. For more information about this project and other upcoming work, please visit roadwork.nola.gov or call 504.658.ROAD (7623).
