Potholes no more? Eh, probably not The Sewerage & Water Board is looking for bids to re-pave open cuts in the streets, driveways, and sidewalks that resulted from SWB’s underground utility repair. It won’t fix all the gaping holes in the city, but at least your tires will get a break on some streets.

Basically, Jefferson’s Parish’s mistake = more potholes for all. Info: 504-736-6262.

  • Fat lot of good it will do for S&W to have a contract to repave open streets when they seem to have such a hard time actually fixing the LEAKS!
    There’s been a leak on Fig @ Carrollton for years and they pave over it (must be an existing contract) and the hole comes back. Imagine that.
