2500 Block of Palmyra Apparently Getting Closed
The 2500 and 2600 blocks of Cleveland Avenue are still not open to traffic.
Nevertheless, crews began to close off the 2500 block of Palmyra Street today, just outside of the VA Footprint, as neighbors and residents looked on.
Given all of the complaints at the VA Neighborhood meeting last Tuesday, as well as all of the complaints at the Wednesday City Council Committee Hearing, I can't believe the City didn't instruct the contractor to wait until Cleveland was open to reduce the problems and tension that continue to plague the neighborhood peripheral to the VA Hospital site.
The utility replacement that is necessitating the closures is in furtherance of the LSU/VA Hospitals project.
