New drainage lines are being installed in the 1200 block of Feliciana and the 1100 block of Montegut Street as part of the $1.5M St. Claude Drainage Improvement Project. The new larger drain lines will help alleviate flooding in the area.
In addition, the project will include rebuilding the street entirely; repairing sidewalks and curbs; and installing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps at intersections.
All businesses in the area remain open and accessible. The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant Program.
Access the presentation from the October 16, 2019, community meeting about the project here.
