A major underground drainage project will reduce traffic to two lanes for the next two years on a three-quarter mile stretch of South Claiborne Avenue through the Carrollton area, authorities said this week.

According to the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans:

Beginning Monday, September 17, 2012 the westbound lanes of South Claiborne Avenue will be closed between Cambronne Street in Orleans Parish and Dakin Street in Jefferson Parish.

Traffic will be detoured for the next two years to the eastbound side of South Claiborne Avenue while contractors working for the Corps of Engineers and the Sewerage and Water Board construct a new drainage canal on South Claiborne Avenue.
