The 800 and 900 blocks of Royal Street sidewalks were not removed andreplaced due to safety hazards with shallow electrical conduits. Entergy representatives reported the existing conduits in these blocks immediately below the existing concrete sidewalk.

Through the use of alternative methods of concrete removal and coordinating closely with Entergy, it has been determined there will be additional sidewalk removal and replacement in the 800 and 900 blocks of Royal Street.

The contractor will engage the services of a utility locator and Entergy. Once the conduit location is determined, the concrete sidewalk will be removed and replaced and the stone curb reset, where possible.

Due to shallow electrical lines, various sidewalk areas of Burgundy were originally not scheduled to be removed for safety precautions. Due to cooperation andcoordination with Entergy, we were able to determine many of them can be removed and replaced in a safe manner.

Starting today, Burgundy beginning at Canal St., will begin the additional sidewalk removal and replacement. The roadway will not be closed, but No Parking signs in the area will be posted. There may be intermittent closures for brief periods of time while the larger construction equipment is in the area.

Thank you for your patience during our progress.
