The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) supports the conversion of New Orleans’ Claiborne Overpass/Interstate 10 (I-10) into a revitalized North Claiborne Avenue. A possible highway-to-boulevard conversion will reconnect the Tremé/ Lafitte and Tulane/Gravier neighborhoods to the rest of New Orleans, bring people and businesses back to the street, increase opportunities for community investment and economic development, and promote healthier living conditions.
This video explores the history of Claiborne Avenue, its present condition, and re-imagines a different future for the corridor. This video was produced with support from the Greater New Orleans Foundation and the Ford Foundation, with special thanks to the Claiborne Corridor Improvement Coalition. This video was created by New Orleans-based photojournalist and multimedia producer, Rob Davis.
