Traffic Advisory: Through Traffic on Bienville St. at the Intersection of Bourbon St.

May 10, 2017

NEW ORLEANS — The City of New Orleans construction contractor, Hard Rock Construction, LLC, will close Bienville Street at the intersection of Bourbon Street to through traffic beginning Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 8 a.m. and lasting through sunset. 

The temporary closure is necessary for construction crews to identify the actual location of underground utilities that may have settled over time. Public safety is our top priority; residents and commuters are reminded to use caution when driving, bicycling and walking near this construction site.

Drivers may use N. Rampart and Decatur Streets as alternate routes to Bourbon Street and Canal or St. Louis Streets as alternative routes to Bienville Street. Signage and traffic control measures will be onsite to direct drivers and pedestrians.

The $6 million French Quarter Infrastructure Improvement Project calls for removing and replacing existing water and drainage lines, repairing the sewer line, repaving the roadway in concrete, installing new sidewalks when necessary and installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.

A full description of the project scope is available at:


For questions and/or concerns about the project, please contact RoadWorkNOLA at (504) 658-ROAD (7623) or send email to
