City of New Orleans contractor Beverly Construction LLC continues to work on Saturdays on the Lower Ninth Ward Northeast Group A project to make up for time lost during the Labor Day holiday and inclement weather days.
Crews worked on the eastern area (bounded by North Claiborne Avenue, Jackson Barracks, Florida Avenue and Caffin Avenue) to remove damaged roadway and sidewalks and form/pour Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant curb ramps.
The project is currently 75 percent complete and remains ahead of the winter 2019 deadline. Residents in the area will continue to be notified of any weekend or extended work hours.
The $3.5M Lower Ninth Ward Northeast Group A project is the second of 13 planned FEMA-funded construction project which will help improve road conditions in the Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood. The project was designed by Neel - Schaffer, Inc.
The scope of work for this project includes:
- Repaving the asphalt roadway from curb-to-curb;
- Patching the roadway with asphalt;
- Repairing damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons; and
- Installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at appropriate intersections.
The City hosted a pre-construction public meeting to discuss anticipated impacts prior to the start of construction. View a copy of the presentation here. To be added to the project contact list, and to track construction progress, visit RoadWork.nola.gov.
