Hard Rock Construction Co., LLC., crews continue to perform concrete roadway operations in the historic Pontchartrain Park neighborhood. New pavement on parts of Mendez Street, Prentiss Avenue, and Mithra Street are being poured this month. Crews have now replaced 85 percent of the waterlines and repaved 35 percent of the roadways within the scope of the project. Water main line installations continue this month on Athis Court, Providence Place, and Campus Drive. The entire project is anticipated to be completed in fall 2021.
Residents will continue to be informed ahead of any work that will involve utility disruption and / or impact their parking and access to their streets.
This $10M project was designed by Stanley Consultants. As a full-depth reconstruction project, work varies block by block but includes:
- Repaving asphalt roadway from curb-to-curb;
- Repairing damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons;
- Installing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant curb ramps at intersections; and
- Replacing / repairing damaged underground water, sewer, and drainage lines.
Information about this project was made available at a public pre-construction meeting on September 22, 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).
