Traffic Advisory: Temporary Partial Road Closure Eastbound on S. Claiborne Avenue at Calhoun

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, November 9 2022

Beginning on Wednesday, November 9, 2022 at 6 p.m. the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans’ contractor, BLD Inc. will temporarily close two right lanes of Eastbound traffic on S. Claiborne Ave (S. Claiborne and Calhoun) with emergency repair work and road restoration taking about 24 hours.

The roadway is expected to re-open on Thursday, November 10, 2022 at around 6 p.m. Weather permitting crews will work through the evening on Wednesday.  This closure is required for an emergency repair to a 48” water main that runs along S. Claiborne Ave. Public safety is our priority; signage will be in place to direct traffic.

This emergency repair work is needed in advance of a larger water transmission main project on S. Claiborne Ave. SWBNO and our partners will notify the public of future traffic impacts related to these large capital water transmission main projects.

We appreciate your patience as we work to improve your water system.
