We also wanted to take a moment to pass along this update from the Garden District Assosciation regarding the construction impacting the entrance of Lafayette Cemetery No. 1:

"This week, the main entrance to the cemetery on Washington will be closed so the crew can demolish and pour the new surface. It will be closed to cure for about one week. The following week, the cobblestones along the curbs' edges will be replaced and then the new ground cover will be installed. As of now, we expect to open one side of the sidewalk while the crew is installing the ground cover on the other side, then swap sides. The completion date is targeted for the end of the month."
