Traffic Alert Road Closures and Detours
NEW ORLEANS – Beginning Tuesday, July 28 and running through Friday, July 31, weather permitting, Entergy New Orleans, Inc. crews will be working on Webster Street, from Camp to Laurel streets as the company continues the technological upgrade to its electric power transmission system.
Multiple Entergy crews with bucket trucks and cranes will conduct work in stages and traffic will be blocked at the site of each steel transmission pole. Here’s a breakdown:
- When "pre-pull" and "post-pull" work is underway, there will be rotating traffic closures (2-4 hours) and no parking will be allowed on either side of Webster. Instead of using Webster, drivers should use Henry Clay Avenue or State Street. There will also be a safe / guarded crossing at Magazine Street.
- During the critical “pull” work, all automobile, bicycle and pedestrian traffic will be prohibited on Webster from Camp across Magazine to Laurel. Both Constance and Patton streets also will be closed to thru traffic at Webster and there will be no parking allowed on either side of Webster during the pull.
Customers in the impacted areas received specific information about the transmission line replacement procedure in advance. Customer service representatives will continue reaching out to impacted customers while work is in progress.
