Two busy blocks of Magazine Street — between Second and Fourth streets along the Garden District and Irish Channel — will close for excavation Friday “until further notice,” the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans announced.

Both the 2500 and 2600 blocks of Magazine will be closed in both directions, as will the intersection of Third Street that runs between them, the announcement states. Traffic will be detoured around the area, the notice states.

“The Sewerage and Water Board will be excavating the street for an assessment of underground infrastructure,” the release states.

The work will begin at 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 20.

  1. Interesting. I wonder what’s going to happen to the Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day parade…

  2. Especially as there is a similar hole forming on Constance where the parade ends.

  3. Idiots. Can they not cross-check a calendar before tearing up a parade route?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
