NEW ORLEANS — The City of New Orleans construction contractor, Command Construction Industries, LLC, has shifted all northbound traffic to the newly constructed northbound lane of Fleur de Lis Drive from 30th Street to Old Hammond Highway. All traditionally southbound traffic on Fleur de Lis Drive between 30th Street to Old Hammond Highway has been detoured to Pontchartrain Boulevard. The traffic shift will last through the fall of 2018, when the project is scheduled to be completed.
Public safety is our top priority. Residents and commuters are reminded to use caution when driving, bicycling and walking near this construction site.
The traffic shift will allow construction crews to continue replacing underground utilities on the traditionally southbound side of Fleur de Lis Drive.
The $12 million Fleur de Lis Drive reconstruction project calls for removing and replacing existing water, sewer and drainage lines, repaving the roadway in concrete, installing new sidewalks and installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.
