Metairie, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that work will resume at the Airline at Clearview Intersection Improvements Project on Monday, August 21, 2023.

Initially awarded to Magee Excavation & Development in May 2021, the project was abandoned in March 2023 at approximately 70% complete. The bonding agent representing Magee worked through the summer to agree on a suitable replacement contractor.

Cycle Construction Company, LLC, based in Kenner, LA, will begin work and complete the $6.28 million project.

"We are grateful to area residents and commuters for their patience," said DOTD District Administrator Scott Boyle. "We are working diligently with all stakeholders to keep this project moving through to completion.”

Once finished, the project will provide widened lanes, restriping, new traffic signals, upgraded drainage, and improved access to adjoining residential neighborhoods.

Work still remaining on the project includes:
· Asphalt resurfacing on Airline Highway from Pasadena Ave. to Harang Ave.
· New traffic signal installation at Clearview and Central Ave.
· Minimal concrete and drainage work
· Full Striping

Alternating lane closures will be necessary for crews to perform work, so the public should be prepared for delays. To limit inconvenience, lane closures on weekdays will be limited to 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. – 6 a.m.

The new estimated time for completion is late 2023.

The Clearview/Airline intersection is one of the busiest in the metro area, with an average daily traffic total of over 50,000 vehicles.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to drive cautiously through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
