Kenner's Katrina-Battered Streets to be Repaired
Kenner streets damaged during Hurricane Katrina will be repaired in a $26.7 million project set to start in spring.
The Times-Picayune reports that the work is federally financed. The damage was caused by flooding and also by heavy equipment deployed to collect debris after the August 2005 storm.
Among thoroughfares in the repair plan are Joe Yenni and Chateau boulevards, Vintage and Loyola drives, West Esplanade Avenue, Williams Boulevard, West Metairie Avenue and Roosevelt Drive.
The repair work is expected to create temporary headaches for motorists.
