Construction in the Footprint
S. Galvez street, a tree-lined boulevard, splits the two halves of the Footprint (the propsed VA site toward the lake and the proposed LSU site toward the river). The street has been under construction as of late, with much of its length torn up for replacement. Interestingly, S. Galvez is one of the few roadways within the overall footprint that is slated, at least in most renderings, to remain in place after the proposed hospitals would be built.
Some businesses, like Durand's Tuxedo's, have already moved away.
