Florida Avenue Project (H.005720)
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) will be conducting a public meeting in open house format for the above project. LADOTD is proposing to construct a new roadway bridge adjacent to the existing Florida Avenue Bridge over the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal (IHNC) in Orleans Parish. In addition to a new bridge, the improvements include: upgrade and extension of the existing Florida Avenue corridor from Elysian Fields Avenue (LA 3021) to Paris Road (LA 47) into St. Bernard Parish; operational improvements along existing Tupelo Street; and several North-South alignment options are being considered for a connector between Florida Avenue and St. Claude Avenue. The purpose of the meeting is to present the proposed project to the public and to solicit comments about the project from the public. The meeting will include a looping presentation that describes the project as well as stations where attendees can speak informally with representatives from LADOTD and the project team. Comments and suggestions will be invited from all interested parties to help insure that the project team addresses the full range of environmental issues during the EA study process.
