The City of New Orleans announced today that they will be installing 60 new pedestrian lights on Jefferson Davis Parkway, a major effort to enhance public safety, beautify the corridor, and invest in MidCity.

The Department of Public Works’ contractor, AllStar Electric, LLC, began trenching in the Jefferson Davis Parkway neutral ground to prepare for the installation of 60 new pedestrian lights, which will illuminate the bike and pedestrian path between Orleans Avenue and the foot of Jefferson Davis Parkway bridge over I-10.

The new streetlight poles are scheduled to be installed in early December.

The new pedestrian lights follow other public investments in the area in recent years, including the Tulane Avenue Streetscape program and a new Public Works center.  Private developers have also heavily invested, including a new $40 million apartment complex and a 20 unit apartment renovation by the New Orleans Redevelopment Fund.
