It’s going to take at least a decade.

The City Of New Orleans announced a $2 billion settlement with FEMA in mid-December 2015 and immediately laid out plans to improve our city’s streets.

I broke a shock off my 4×4 while driving on a surface street through St Claude last Fall so the news could not be any more welcome.
