Fleming Construction crews are currently 60% complete with the Lower Ninth Ward Northeast Group B infrastructure improvement project. Crews have completed 90% of the waterline work and over 80% of the drainage work. Paving work has been completed on parts of Tupelo and Law streets, with expected completion of paving on North Tonti and Nina streets by mid-October, weather permitting.
Waterline work will continue on this project through November 2021.
Any residents that require reasonable accommodations on the site are encouraged to call the Roadwork NOLA hotline. 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 $5.8M project was designed by Neel-Schaffer, Inc. and will be constructed by Fleming Construction Co, LLC.
Construction started in June 2020 and is on track to be completed in fall 2021, weather permitting. This is a full depth reconstruction, but work varies block by block:
- 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.
Information about this project was made available at a pre-construction public meeting on May 5, 2020. The presentation can be found here.
