Due to weather and construction-related delays, the 3100 block of Broadway Street between Earhart Boulevard and Colapissa Street will remain closed through mid-June 2021. City of New Orleans Department of Public Works' contractor, Wallace C. Drennan Construction Company will continue sewer-line replacement operations as part of the Marlyville-Fontainebleau Group C infrastructure improvement project.

Public safety is our priority; residents and commuters are reminded to use caution when driving, bicycling and walking near the construction site. Residents in this area are being notified of the extended closure via a neighborhood canvass this week.
Lane closure signs will be in place throughout construction. During this time, street parking and/or driveway access will be impacted. Residents and visitors must adhere to any “No Parking” signs on the streets to avoid being ticketed and towed.
The $10.5 million Marlyville-Fontainebleau Group C infrastructure improvement project calls for removing and replacing existing water and drainage lines, repairing the sewer line, repaving the roadway in asphalt, replacing damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons and installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.
The City of New Orleans Department of Public Works (DPW) and Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) are working together to implement an unprecedented program to restore our damaged infrastructure. Using local and federal funds, the $2.3 billion program is the most comprehensive that our region has seen in a generation.
