Hard Rock Construction Co., LLC began work on the East Riverside, Garden District, Irish Channel, St Thomas Group A project in February. Due to delays on this project crews will continue to work some weekends to meet critical deadlines outlined in this update. Residents will continue to be notified ahead of any weekend work.
The Department of Public Works (DPW) will continue pre-pour inspections in preparations for upcoming paving operations on the following blocks: Fourth Street, Sixth Street, Pleasant Street, Toledano Street, Chippewa Street, Delachaise Street and Aline Street. Weather permitting, asphalt paving on these streets will be completed by mid-June.
In close collaboration with SWBNO, Hard Rock Construction will continue waterline work on the following blocks in preparation for upcoming waterline tie-ins on Peniston, Gen. Taylor and Constance streets. Waterline work schedules may change due to testing needs and inclement weather. Residents will be notified 48-hours ahead of all waterline work that will impact water pressure and usage.
Hard Rock will also begin forming the roadways and sidewalks on Napoleon Ave. and Gen. Pershing St. in anticipation of inspections, followed by paving operations, in May. This work is expected to be complete by early July, weather permitting.
This $7M full-depth reconstruction project was designed by Integrated Logical Support, Inc. The scope of work varies block by block but includes the following:
- Replace damaged underground water, sewer and drainage lines;
- Repave the roadway;
- Replace damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons; and
- Install Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant curb ramps at intersections.
The City of New Orleans hosted a virtual meeting to discuss anticipated impacts to the community. View a copy of the presentation here. To be added to the project contact list and track our progress, visit roadwork.nola.gov.
