General De Gaulle Dr. westbound to close periodically between Behrman Pl. and MacArthur Blvd.
Work related to the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project (SELA)
NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New Orleans District will temporarily close the left lane of General De Gaulle Drive westbound to traffic between Behrman Place and MacArthur Boulevard for work related to the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control project.
Starting Wednesday, April 1, 2020, the left lane will be closed periodically between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. when the work site is receiving construction equipment. Deliveries are not anticipated to be a daily occurrence, reducing the impact to the community as much as possible. These temporary closures are related to improving drainage in the area and are expected to be necessary for approximately 10 months.
Throughout construction, the Army Corps will continue to coordinate closures with its partners at the City of New Orleans and the Sewerage & Water Board.
