NEW ORLEANS — The City of New Orleans construction contractor, Hard Rock Construction, LLC, will close Conti Street at the intersection of Bourbon Street to through traffic beginning Friday, Sept. 8, 2017 at 8 a.m. and lasting for several weeks.
The closure is necessary for construction crews to install new underground utilities at the intersection. Crews are currently reconstructing the roadway and its underground utilities as part of the French Quarter Infrastructure Improvement Project. The intersection will be paved in concrete before it reopens.
Drivers may use N. Rampart and Decatur Streets as alternate routes to Bourbon Street and Canal or Toulouse Streets as alternate routes to Conti Street. Public safety is our top priority; residents and commuters are reminded to use caution when driving, bicycling and walking near active construction sites and detours. Signage and traffic control measures, such as barrels, will be onsite to direct drivers and pedestrians.
This multi-million dollar reconstruction project calls for removing and replacing existing water and drainage lines, repairing the sewer line, repaving the roadway in concrete, installing new sidewalks when necessary and installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.
A full description of the project scope is available at: http://roadwork.nola.gov/bourbon/
