New Orleans' 'Slow Streets' initiative aims to give people more room to walk, bicycle, and jog while maintaining physical distancing. Beginning on May 6, 2020, the city will install signage, cones, and barricades to limit access to the downtown side of Moss Street between Lafitte Avenue and Esplanade Avenue along Bayou St. John to local traffic and emergency vehicles only. The traffic modification will be in place through May 18. The New Orleans Department of Public Works will be monitoring and evaluating the traffic modifications for the duration of the initiative. New Orleans 'Slow Streets' is a collaboration between the Department of Health, the Department of Public Works and the Mayor’s Office of Transportation.
