Uptown Messenger: Freret streetscape slated for June start, Claiborne in August, city says
Two long-awaited Uptown street-beautification projects are poised to begin this summer after issues with their contractor delayed them from an expected spring start, officials said Monday afternoon.

The $500,000 streetscape upgrades on the Freret commercial corridor are set to begin in June, and $2 million worth of similar work on South Claiborne is expected to start in August, Deputy Mayor Cedric Grant told City Councilwoman Stacy Head during a meeting of the city’s Public Works Committee.

Banners, streetlights, trees, yadda yadda. Come back when you've got a Blue Dog or a Mr. Peanut and we'll talk.
