Rampart and Canal: “no-zone” through August

The looming logjam is necessary to allow Archer to install a so-called “half grand union,” an elaborate forking of track that eventually will let Rampart streetcarstravel toward the foot of Canal Street or jag to the right and continue along Loyola Avenue to the Union Passenger Terminal.

When a similar installation took place on the Loyola Avenue line, it took four months to finish.

This time, “we will actually complete this work in 30 days,” said project manager Martin Pospisil. “It’s going to be a non-stop, 24/7 operation.”
