The city’s Department of Public Works and the Sewerage & Water Board has planned extensive road repairs in the Freret Street area.

A public meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 8, will provide residents an opportunity to learn more about the upcoming Freret Group A project and get their questions addressed, according to a notice from District B Councilman Jay Banks’ office.

Roadwork NOLA is hosting the meeting to discuss the repairs scheduled to begin soon in the Freret Street area. They will include:

• Repaving the asphalt roadway from curb-to-curb;
• Patching the roadway with asphalt or concrete;
• Repairing damaged sidewalks with driveway aprons;
• Installing Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant curb ramps at intersection; and
• Replacing/repairing damaged underground water, sewer, and/or drainage lines.

The contractor will work from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and construction will last approximately one year, pending any weather delays or extenuating circumstances.

The meeting will take place Wednesday, Jan. 8, beginning at 6 p.m.
