The reunification of Uptown is slowly becoming a reality.
Now relief is in sight. After 4½ years of lane restrictions, detours and dust, four of the six big projects underway on South Claiborne, Jefferson, Louisiana and Napoleon avenues are scheduled to come to an end this year – including one this month and two in April and May.
That can't come soon enough for many residents and motorists. They've been seeking alternate routes, or braving the construction zones, since September 2011.
Click through for the estimated dates on each project. I'm curious about the delay along upper Jefferson Avenue. Seems like they've been working there the longest.
