Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development issued the following announcement on Feb. 1.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that beginning on Feb. 7 there will be a temporary three-month closure for the median opening at the intersection of U.S. 90 (Gentilly Boulevard) and Caton Street in New Orleans. The Department has identified this area as having a high potential for safety improvements due to the large number of crashes reported at this intersection.
The temporary median closure will be constructed using traffic barricades and water-filled barriers. During this three-month period, DOTD will monitor changes to traffic operations, as well as review feedback from the community. After it has been determined that no significant safety or mobility concerns arise from the temporary closure, DOTD will seek funding to permanently close off the median opening by installing a permanent raised median.
