Traffic Restrictions In French Quarter

Traffic will be restricted in a large portion of the French Quarter through Wednesday morning.

Beginning at 5 p.m. today and continuing until Wednesday at 6 a.m., no on-street parking or vehicular traffic will be allowed in the area between Iberville and Dumaine Streets and between North Rampart and Decatur Streets, except those vehicles issued Vieux Carré resident permits. 

Those permits should be displayed on vehicle dashboards so they are clearly visible to police officers staffing barricades. 

Vehicles in violation are subject to a $75 fine and seizure ($161.25 tow fee).
