Traffic signal at St. Charles and Napoleon downed by Hurricane Katrina. Still down in December 2005.
NOPD is commemorating the eighth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the Federal Flood in the only way they know how.
The New Orleans Police Department’s Traffic Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint on Thursday, August 29, 2013, in Orleans Parish. The check point will begin at approximately 9:00 P.M. and will conclude at about 5:00 A.M. Motorists will experience minimal delays and should have the proper documentation, i.e., proof of insurance, driver’s license, etc., available if requested.As we know, the announcements no longer get any more specific than "Orleans Parish." Maybe they'll set up at the Danzinger Bridge just for the sake of sentiment.
Anyway, drive safely. This is not a time for contraflow.
