Before the City of New Orleans releases its request for proposals to conduct the federal TIGER II transportation study, the Claiborne Corridor Improvement Coalition sought to educate residents on a potential highway removal project favoring a boulevard conversion effort. Featuring CNU member Eric Dumbaugh, you can now watch this event online:

The event was organized by CNU and the Claiborne Corridor Improvement Coalition, with support from the Ford Foundation, the Greater New Orleans Foundation, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, Tulane University's School of Architecture, and University of New Orleans' Merritt C. Becker, Jr. Transportation Institute.  If you have questions about this event series or would like more information about Highways-to-Boulevards in New Orleans, please contact Caitlin Ghoshal at
