Rampart Streetcar Line Rolling Soon

Wednesday afternoon ushered in yet another milestone for the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA) with the groundbreaking ceremony for the much anticipated Rampart Streetcar Line. The Tremé Brass Band set the mood as City and State officials spoke to a crowd of the advantages and possibilities the streetcar line will bring to the area. 

Infinity Engineering Consultants, LLC is proud to have been a part of the design team for the $41.5 million project that will bring a 1.6 mile streetcar line from Canal Street along Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue to Elysian Fields Avenue. Our team  was tasked with producing construction drawings, record specifications, and identification of utility conflict and design. The streetcar is expected to roll by September 2016.

We want their experience here to be something positive.

Komen Race for the Cure

The Infinity team took to the streets again this year for the New Orleans Komen Race for the Cure. The 5K raises awareness and, most importantly, funds for breast cancer research. 

The Susan G. Komen organization has invested more than $2.2 billion in the breast cancer movement since it began in 1982. The New Orleans Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure raises funds for local grants for education, screening and treatment programs.

Since 1992, Komen has put $4.8 million in grants in New Orleans. Seventy-five percent of money raised in the New Orleans Race for the Cure stays here in our community. According to the Komen New Orleans website, this year alone (April 2014-March 2015) they have granted $616,000 to nine local projects that provide "breast health and breast cancer services to thousands of low-income and uninsured women in our community."

The Race for the Cure is a great way to raise funds and awareness, but it doesn't have to stop there. To make a donation to Komen New Orleans, click here.
