Aubry Street Infrastructure Improvement Project Completed

NEW ORLEANS – Mayor Mitch Landrieu joined city and state officials and community stakeholders Thursday, April 27, to celebrate the completion of the $2.2 million Aubry Street Infrastructure Improvement Project. The construction stretched from North Broad Street to Gentilly Boulevard.

         “The completion of Aubry Street and every street like it is an important step to making New Orleans whole again,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “Fixing the city’s aging infrastructure is not only necessary to get around, but important to the future economic viability of New Orleans.”

         The Aubry Street Infrastructure Improvement Project included installing new subsurface drainage lines and catch basins, replacing the existing sewer and water lines, widening the roadway (from 22 ft. to 26 ft.), replacing the existing asphalt roadway with a concrete roadway, establishing a curb and gutter within the project limits, replacing sidewalks the length of the project, and installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersections.

         Sewerage & Water Board Executive Director Cedric Grant said, “The Aubry Street Infrastructure Improvement Project enhances the roadway and lays the foundation for continued recovery and investment in the neighborhood.”

         The Aubry Street Infrastructure Improvement Project was designed by MSMM Engineering, LLC. and was constructed by Hard Rock Construction, LLC. Funding for this $2.2 million project comes from the Disaster Community Development Block Grant (D-CDBG).
