New Construction of Homes in New Orleans’ Suburbs

The New Orleans area is growing fast with new construction of homes throughout all the surrounding suburbs.  If you are a resident of New Orleans or any of the neighboring suburbs such as Belle Chasse, you are familiar with the Cresent City Connection Toll Plaza.  Those who travel U.S. 90 into the city will have a less hectic commute in the near future.  The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development plan to remove the Cresent City Connection Toll Plaza and are reconfiguring the highway.

The Cresent City Connection Toll Plaza has caused an abundance of traffic problems throughout the years as drivers6-084 split into twelve lanes through the abandoned toll booths and immediately merge into four lanes to travel over the bridge.  Once the toll plaza is removed, Louisiana DOTD will install barriers on each side of the highway narrowing the lanes to five instead of twelve.

Gibson & Associates Inc. of Balch Springs, Texas will be completing the $2.2 million dollar project which is planned to be finished early next year.

Commuting from the West Bank to the Central Business District in New Orleans will definitely get a little bit easier by car once all of the construction is complete.  The advantages of living on the West Bank and commuting to work in New Orleans is that you have more than one option of getting to the city, driving over the Crescent City Connection or traveling by ferry at the Algiers Ferry.  Both options will get you directly into the City of New Orleans.

Living on the West Bank vs. living in the city of New Orleans is also more affordable.  The Parks of Plaquemines, a master planned, new home community in Belle Chasse, Louisiana, has lower tax rates, lower sewer and water rents, and offers a safer environment for living with even a country feel in our sprawling subdivision.  Residents enjoy walking and hiking trails all around the community as well as a swimming pool and tot lot for kids.  Call today to Tour Our Community – 504-364-2350 or E-mail
