Construction of the N. Rampart Street/St. Claude Avenue Streetcar line will begin in January 2015. The RTA is hosting an informational meeting on January 7, 2015 at Joseph A. Craig School, 1423 St. Phillip Street.
During the meeting, the project team will be introduced and track alignment, station stops, shelter design, and the project schedule will be presented. Traffic control, major events and community outreach during construction will be addressed as well. Representatives from the construction and management team will be available after the presentation to answer questions.
