Hard Rock Construction began work on the East Riverside, Garden District, Irish Channel, St Thomas Group A project in February. Crews started the project with excavation work on First and Josephine streets.
The community will be informed ahead of any work that will involve utility disruption and/or impact their parking and access to their streets. Residents are asked to continue to be mindful of “No Parking” signs installed prior to roadwork. Vehicles are eligible for towing if not moved within 24 hours of signs being placed.
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-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.
