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.
