A New Orleans Neighborhood: Bewildered by Sewer Setback


Residents of New Orleans living in the neighborhood of Prytania St. have been no stranger to unceasing construction.  A project that is part of the Southeast Louisiana drainage initiative has been far more extensive than originally planned. To be specific, two years more extensive.  Concerned residents have conducted a meeting with a spokesperson from the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board.  The purpose was to get answers regarding the ongoing tie-up of construction. The need for repair is due to the sagging sewer lines on the river side of Prytania Street.  Residents suspect the lines were fragmented by the constant pressure of heavy construction equipment. An apparent sinkhole, on adjacent streets, that has yet to be filled is the culprit for the delayed completion of the project. The engineers who are overseeing the project have reassured the enduring homeowners.  Their focus remains on the neighborhood, and returning it back to normal is indeed a priority.  The work on the sewer lines begins this week with an estimated completion date for road construction (on Prytania Street) revised to the end of May. I surmise the ‘patience is a virtue’ saying is way overrated, in this instance.
