Through close collaboration with the Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Louisiana Department of Transportation (LADOTD), Command Construction Industries crews began planning for work along Downman Road as part of the $6.4M Viavant-Lake Catherine Group C project. Work on Downman Road will require a temporary traffic shift; residents and businesses will be notified in advance.
This month the contractor continued roadway construction at Industrial Parkway and Old Gentilly Road. This
project was designed by All South Consulting Engineers, LLC and is expected to be completed in summer 2021.
The scope of work varies by block and includes the following:
- Patch Mill/Overlay: Repaving the asphalt roadway from curb to curb and repair damaged sidewalks;
- Patch Concrete: Removing damaged portions of the concrete roadway and replace it with new smooth concrete pavement;
- Incidental Road Repairs: Removing damaged portions of the asphalt roadway and replace it with new smooth pavement; and
- Non-Paving Incidentals: Repairing damaged sidewalks, driveway aprons and curbs within the public right-of-way.
The City of New Orleans hosted a virtual meeting via Webex in July 2020 to discuss anticipated impacts to the community. View a copy of the presentation here. For more information about this project and other upcoming work, please visit roadwork.nola.gov or call 504.658.ROAD (7623).
