Neighborhood Project Updates
Contractors have completed layout work in 95% of the Lakeview neighborhood, according to the Department of Public Works (“DPW”). This includes sidewalk demolition and restoration. Crews will continue working on pavement along 600 Polk Street, 6100 and 6200 General Diaz Street, 700 Germain Street, 600 Brooks Street, 6100 General Haig Street, 6000 Louis XIV Street, and 200 French Street.
Construction on the waterline replacements in the 6100 block of Vicksburg and the 800 block of Brooks Street are complete. The pavement above the roadway is delayed due to a broken drain.
Construction has been delayed on various blocks as a result of an increase in scope, inclement weather, as well as unforeseen underground conditions. Once the underground utilities have been replaced, the roadway work will resume. The planned scope of work in these areas includes removal and replacement of portions of the sidewalk, curb and roadway. This project is approximately 75 percent complete.
Please be advised that crews are working Monday through Friday from7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Residents should exercise caution when driving, bicycling, or walking near active construction sites.
Fleur De Lis Phase III
The Fleur De Lis Drive Phase III project design plans are finalized and funding is authorized. At this time, the state is currently processing a plan revision to address minor design errors and award a contract for Construction Engineering and Inspection.
The scope of work includes removing and replacing the underground sewer, water and drainage lines, replacing sidewalks, installing American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps and repaving the roadway.
Fleur de Lis III is a cost share project with 80 percent of the funding Federal (administered by the State) and 20 percent funded with City bond funds.
Prior to the Fleur De Lis Phase III construction, the DPW will host a public meeting to describe what the residents should anticipate during construction. The project is expected to begin construction in spring of 2016.
