City Issues Jackson Avenue Traffic Advisory
NEW ORLEANS – The City of New Orleans issued a traffic advisory for Central City. Jackson Avenue between St. Charles and S. Claiborne avenues will temporarily close one travel lane for approximately two weeks. The City’s Department of Public Works contractor, Hard Rock Construction, LLC, will begin placing new asphalt as part of the Jackson Avenue Infrastructure Improvements Project.
Through Monday, Jan. 9, river-bound traffic on Jackson Avenue will be detoured to Carondelet Street.
Beginning, Tuesday, Jan. 10, and lasting until Monday, Jan. 16, lake-bound traffic on Jackson Avenue will be detoured to St. Charles Avenue.
The scope of work includes removing and replacing the top three inches of asphalt pavement. The Community Development Block Grant is funding this project.
