Effective April 2021 work on the Lower Ninth Ward Northwest Group B project has been paused. The work is more than 80% complete and expected to resume before the close of the year. Residents will be notified of remaining scope work and new project timelines prior to work resuming.
Construction started in late December 2019 and is expected to be complete by winter 2022, weather permitting. This $5.7M project, designed by Burk-Kleinpeter, Inc., varies block by block but includes the following:
• Installation of new subsurface drainage, sewer, and water lines;
• Removal and replacement of sidewalks and driveways aprons;
• Installation of Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections;
• Manhole adjustments; and
• Repaving of the roadway.
Details of this project were made available at the pre-construction public meeting. View a copy of the public meeting presentation here.
