The City of New Orleans extends temporary closure on Broadway Street

Pierre St-Jean

NEW ORLEANS, LA — On June 4, the City of New Orleans issued a traffic advisory regarding an extended temporary closure along the Broadway Street.

Due to weather and construction-related delays, the 3100 block of Broadway Street between Earhart Boulevard and Colapissa Street will remain closed through mid-June 2021. Wallace C. Drennan Construction Company, a subcontractor for the City of New Orleans Department of Public Works, will continue sewer-line replacement operations as part of the Marlyville-Fontainebleau Group C infrastructure improvement project, which is currently under construction.

Residents and commuters are advised to exercise caution when driving, bicycling or walking in the vicinity of the work site because public safety is the city’s number one priority. During a neighborhood canvassing effort this week, residents in this region will be made aware of the extended closure period.

Throughout the duration of the works, lane closure signs will be in place. Parking on the street and/or access to driveways will be restricted during this time period. Residents and tourists are required to obey any “No Parking” signs that may be posted on the roadways in order to prevent getting penalized or towed.

Citizens may see the original project presentation, which includes additional information on the construction by going here.

The $10.5 million Marlyville-Fontainebleau Group C infrastructure improvement project includes the removal and replacement of existing water and drainage lines, the repair of the sewer line, the asphalt repaving of the roadway, the replacement of damaged sidewalks and driveway aprons and the installation of Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.

Since May 2018, DPW has completed 94 projects totaling $260 million in value. Today, 65 projects totaling $602 million are under construction.
