City of New Orleans to Deactivate School Zone Cameras for the Summer

NEW ORLEANS — The City of New Orleans Department of Public Works (DPW) today announced that all school zone traffic cameras will be deactivated for the summer.

School zone cameras will be turned off Friday, May 24 at 4:45 p.m. and will be reactivated when the majority of schools resume in August.

On May 16, 2023, Mayor LaToya Cantrell signed an ordinance expanding school zone eligibility from grades K-7 to grades K-12. This will allow for the installation of signage, designated crosswalks, striping and other traffic control devices at all elementary and secondary schools in the city.

DPW anticipates the full implementation of this new ordinance by the start of 2024-2025 academic year.
