Fleming Construction workers are completing driveways on Stephen Girard as a part of the $15M Pontilly Stormwater Project. Workers excavated more than 10 blocks in Pontchartrain Park to install new drainage connections that will be attached to urban bioswales. Residents were granted temporary aggregate driveways while construction progressed.
With the excavation work now complete between Press Drive and Mark Twain Drive, crews are installing permanent driveways to grant residents full access to their property. Completed bioswales will be seeded with native vegetation and other beautification features to aesthetically incorporate the drainage project into the existing community.
A pre-construction community meeting was held in February at Mary D. Coghill Elementary School; view the preconstruction public meeting presentation here.
