Canal Street Ferry Terminal

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. 

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.
