Staring Lane, between Highland Road and Kingcrest Parkway, will reopen to traffic beginning at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday city-parish officials said in a news release.
The road was closed for three weeks so crews could install and test a new sewer pipeline as part of a Green Light Plan project to widen the roadway.
Mayor-President Kip Holden thanked the public for its continuing patience through the construction period.
“Many people came together to complete the necessary work during this closure,” Holden said in a statement. “Work that involved a set of complex tasks made possible by the team’s coordinated approach to getting this work done, allowing us to continue to move toward the overall completion of this project.”
Staring Lane is schedule to be completed by fall 2013, Green Light Plan officials said in a news release.
