St. Bernard Avenue Underpass "before" extension
Attached text: St. Bernard Ave, now paved from DeSaix Circle to Senate St, is to be extended to the Lakefront by the New Orleans' Streets Department when the city acquires the necessary right-of-way. This will give the city another major boulevard leading to Lake Pontchartrain. Drainage was recently installed in the portion between Prentiss Ave and the north end of Oak Park Subdivision.
