NEW ORLEANS — Bike Easy, along with a coalition of partners and support from the City of New Orleans, will continue installing elements of the Connect the Crescent demonstration mobility project on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 25 and 26, 2018, beginning at 6:30 a.m.
Residents should expect limited access to curb space as volunteers paint temporary roadway striping and re-configure the public right of way. Commuters should also plan to travel at reduced speed and expect intermittent roadway closures during the installation, which is scheduled to last through 5 p.m.
Installations are planned on the following stretches of roadway and cross streets on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018:
- Baronne Street from Canal Street to Howard Avenue
- Howard Avenue from Baronne Street to South Rampart Street/Dryades Street
- O’Keefe Avenue from Calliope Street to Howard Avenue
- Canal Street from Tchoupitoulas Street to Convention Center Boulevard
Please see maps below.
Connect the Crescent is a three-month demonstration project that will showcase a connected network of low-stress bikeways, pedestrian safety measures and improved transit-stop access in the downtown area.
