There will be yet another temporary change in traffic on block of Roman Street between Tulane and Gravier starting Wednesday, March 20th. Below find the text from an email from facilities services.
The construction of the underground utility piping along South Roman Street continues. The contractor is nearing completion of pipe installation under the sidewalk this week and will commence trenching across South Roman Street at the intersection with Tulane Avenue at 6:00 AM on Wednesday morning, March 20, 2013. Consequently, South Roman Street will switch to two-way local traffic accessible only from the Gravier Street end. The parking garage entrance lanes and exit lanes will remain open. The intersection of Tulane Avenue and South Roman will be closed to traffic, therefore users should enter from the Gravier Street end and will exit that same direction when leaving. A map illustrating the street and sidewalk closure can be viewed here:
Thank you for your patience.
Just in case you missed this all faculty, staff, and students email from Facilities yesterday afternoon; road work in front of the Roman Street garage is starting on Monday morning early:
The construction on the new hospital project continues with the installation of underground utility piping along South Roman Street. A contractor will commence installation of this piping on the St. Joseph’s Church side of South Roman Street between Tulane Avenue and Gravier Street at 6:00 AM on Monday, February 25th until Friday, March 22nd. Consequently, South Roman Street will be converted to one way traffic from Tulane Avenue towards Gravier Street for the duration of this construction. Signs will be posted clearly showing the new traffic patterns. The sidewalk along South Roman Street adjacent to St. Joseph’s Church will also be closed to pedestrian traffic. A map illustrating the street and sidewalk closure can be viewed here:
Future phases of this utility piping installation will further change traffic patterns in this area. Another mass email will be sent to describe those changes when the contractor is closer to commencement.
