City of New Orleans officials held a press conference at Woldenberg Park on Nov. 5 to officially announce the plans to revamp the Canal Street Ferry Terminal using a $10 million grant.
Infinity Engineering Consultants has the honor of being a major part of the design team that will be tasked with creating a new terminal, streetcar access to the convention center, a double ferry dock capacity and bus bay access. Funds for the project were procured by the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) through the competitive Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant.
The City sees the renovations of the ferry terminal as a key piece of the puzzle in revamping the riverfront area. The new renovations will facilitate the revitalization of the area in advance of the City of New Orleans' 300th anniversary in 2018.
