Traffic Update: Claiborne Corridor


Beginning Monday, September 17, 2012 the westbound lanes of South Claiborne Avenue will be closed between Cambronne Street in Orleans Parish and Dakin Street in Jefferson Parish.
Traffic will be detoured for the next two years to the eastbound side of South Claiborne Avenue while contractors working for the Corps of Engineers and the Sewerage and Water Board construct a new drainage canal on South Claiborne Avenue.

Call for Volunteers

We are hosting a Tip the Block volunteer event next Thursday 20 from 8:30 am- 12 pm in Leonidas. We are a little short on volunteers now so I was hoping that maybe you could help us spread the word to any locals who might be able to come by and work with us on that date? Would it be possible to put out a call for volunteers on your website or social media? Volunteers will help with vegetable garden builds, storm drain cleaning and marking, and neighborhood clean-up. Anyone who is interested should e-mail me at
