Mayor Cantrell Breaks Ground on Lake Terrace and Oaks Group D Roadwork Project

Today, Mayor Cantrell held a grounbbreaking event for the $5.8M Lake Terrace and Oaks Group D roadwork project that will transform three streets (seven blocks in total) in the Lake Terrace and Oaks neighborhood by summer 2021.


“This is a perfect example of how we are putting our federal dollars to work in our coordinated efforts between the Department of Public Works and the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans to fix our aging infrastructure in every City Council district, including District D. Getting these projects done, on time, as we work through the COVID-19 pandemic keeps the city moving forward, our contractors working, and our streets fixed,” said Mayor Cantrell.

“The work we’re doing here in the Lake Terrace and Oaks neighborhood is indicative of the kinds of infrastructure progress we’re making across District D. We have already completed eight projects in District D valued at $22.9M, with 15 projects currently under construction in District D worth more than $112M and 58 more projects worth more than $325M currently in design. That is more than $460M worth of infrastructure improvements in District D alone,” said Ramsey Green, Deputy CAO for Infrastructure.


The $5.8M in funding is divided between $3.9M from DPW and $1.7M from SWBNO. This full-depth reconstruction project was designed to replace damaged underground water, sewer and drainage lines; repave roadways; replace damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons; and install Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.


Infrastructure projects are continuing to move forward across the city. Between maintenance projects and the Joint Infrastructure Program, the City currently has 62 DPW projects under construction valued at nearly $416M. Between now and the end of 2020, the City is forecasting a total of $585M worth of Joint Infrastructure projects going out to bid.
