Attached text: Elysian Fields Ave, a major thoroughfare stretching across New Orleans from the river to the lake, has undergone a comeplete face-lifting between the river and the overpass. The railroad tracks have been removed, the roadways widened to 34 feet, new whiteway lighting has been installed, and the neutral ground beautified. This was made possible by the concolidation of railroad terminals and tracks under the New Orleans UPT Program.
