Waterline replacements and tie-ins are continuing on the $10.3M Wright Road (Chef Menteur Boulevard – Dwyer Road) Full Reconstruction project that began in November 2020. Work on the northbound lane of Wright Road is being finalized with sidewalk and driveway operations completing this month. The southbound lane of Wright Road is limited to resident access only as crews continue waterline replacement installation. Weekend work across this project has been frequent throughout summer and fall to ensure that the scheduled timeline for completion is maintained despite severe weather events.
The Wright Road project was designed by Pivotal Engineering and is being constructed by Hard Rock Construction, LLC.
