Starting on Monday, May 8, the intersection of Cousin Street and Carey Street will be closed for construction. Barring any unforeseen issues, the intersection is anticipated to reopen on Friday, May 12.

This closure marks the beginning of the Olde Towne Crosswalks Project, which will add brick paver crosswalks at the intersections of Cousin Street and Carey Street, Cousin Street and First Street, First Street ad Robert Street, and Robert Street and Carey Street. McDonald Construction is the contractor and the project should be completed in two months.

“This project came to fruition from the Slidell Main Street Master Plan meetings, and I know that Olde Towne residents and businesses are excited about this project,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “I would like to thank Senator Hewitt for her help in securing funding from the State for this project.”
