City of New Orleans to commemorate completion of New Orleans East streetscape project

June 11, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Tomorrow, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, City and State officials will commemorate the completion of the New Orleans Streetscape Project. A streetscape is a public improvement project that enhances the public area and triggers subsequent recovery and investment in surrounding neighborhoods.

In total, $3 million in infrastructure improvements have been completed along Read Boulevard (I-10 Service Road to Dwyer Road), Crowder Boulevard (I-10 Service Road to Dwyer Road), and Lake Forest Boulevard (Bundy Road to Wright Street). Improvements include new sidewalks along Lake Forest Boulevard with access to the New Orleans East Regional Library and Joe W. Brown Park, new seating and trash receptacles in the small park at the corner of Lake Forest Boulevard and Wright Street, a new walking path on Lake Forest Boulevard, installation of 140 additional streetlights and more than 350 new trees, and a dedicated bike lane on Read, Crowder, and Lake Forest Boulevards. This project was funded with Disaster Community Development Block Grant (D-CDBG) funds.
