Attached text: South Broad Avenue Overpass in midtown New Orleans will be opened December 24 as the 10th grade separation to be placed in use in New Orleans' program of separating street and rail traffic. This huge $3.8 million structure spans main approach tracks to new Union Station and filled New Basin Canal. It eliminates one of the worst traffic rail bottlenecks that have congested traffic in New Orleans for many years.
