Work on the Westbank Group A project, the first of two planned FEMA-funded construction projects on the Westbank of New Orleans, is progressing. With a $2M addition to the original project scope, work in the Algiers will now be complete in summer of 2019.
Residents are asked to be mindful of the temporary ‘No Parking’ signs that are installed prior to roadwork. Vehicles are eligible for towing if not moved within 24 hours once signs are installed.

The type of work planned varies by block but will include the following:
- Patch Mill / Overlay: Repave the asphalt roadway from curb to curb and repair damaged sidewalks;
- Patch Concrete: Remove damaged portions of the concrete roadway and replace it with new smooth concrete pavement;
- Incidental Road Repairs: Remove damaged portions of the asphalt roadway and replace it with new smooth pavement; and
- Non-Paving Incidentals: Repair damaged sidewalks, driveway aprons and curbs within the public right-of-way.
Details of the construction sequencing and timeline were first made available at the pre-construction public meeting. View a copy of the public meeting presentation and details about construction sequencing here.
