City to Break Ground on S. Galvez Street Reconstruction Project

NEW ORLEANS –- (RealEstateRama) — Tomorrow, Mayor Mitch Landrieu will join City and State officials, and community stakeholders to break ground on the $5.4 million S. Galvez Street Reconstruction Project in the Hoffman Triangle neighborhood. The construction will stretch from Toledano Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

The S. Galvez Street Reconstruction Project will be a full reconstruction of the roadway, including replacement of the existing sewer, water and drainage lines; installing water absorbent concrete (pervious pavement) parking lanes which reduces the amount of water that requires pumping and processing by the City’s storm water drainage system; narrowing the width of the existing roadway from 35 ft. to 26 ft.; and reconfiguring the roadway from two travel lanes and one parking lane in each direction, to one travel lane, one dedicated bicycle lane, and one parking lane in each direction.
