The City of New Orleans Department of Public Works (DPW) and Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) are working together to implement this $2.3B program to restore damaged infrastructure, using local and federal funds.
The City completed a comprehensive, scientific assessment of City-owned streets in spring 2015 and received the final results of the assessment in the summer of 2016. The City is using the results of the pavement assessment as part of the method to prioritize future infrastructure projects. To review results on your block click here.

On June 7, 2018 Governor John Bel Edwards signed the Fair Share package into law - an agreement that dedicates more than $200 million toward the most critical infrastructure needs in New Orleans. This package includes $50M in one-time funding that will lead toward fiscal solvency of the Sewerage and Water Board and $27M in recurring funds to improve the SWB and to continue to improve our city streets.
On August 7, 2019, Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced an Infrastructure Advisory Board to provide oversight of the Sewerage & Water Board (S&WB). The board, which has four members named by Mayor Cantrell and three members by Gov. John Bel Edwards, was created in June by the Mayor’s executive order.
