Miller told residents the city is still considering several proposals made in the study, including the blocks recommended for closures and the times of closure. He also said the bollards have to be wide enough to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The initial deadline for public comments was July 7, but residents present told officials they needed more time to read the 365-page study. Comments received will be considered and added into the findings of the final report by mid-July, Jernigan said. A decision on possible closures of Bourbon Street will be made by the end of July.
Comments on the study can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org until 5 p.m. on July 10. The full study is available on the Roadwork.nola.gov website.
