NEW ORLEANS — The Times-Picayune reports that after a four-month closure to extend the city’s streetcar line, the busy intersection at Canal Boulevard and City Park is on track to re-open next week.

The timing roughly aligns with Transdev's original Nov. 27 estimated completion date for the $9.8 million project, which aims to stretch the Canal streetcar line across the Canal Boulevard-City Park Avenue intersection before linking with new bus and streetcar shelters near Rosedale Drive.
