DOTD begins East 70th Street improvement project | Business
Work will begin on La. 511 (East 70th Street) Line Avenue to Fern Avenue beginning on Monday, Feb. 25, according to the La. Department of Transportation and Development.

Construction is expected to take approximately one year to complete.
