The Sewerage & Water Board has announced construction projects that will cause traffic disruptions and low water pressure in parts of New Orleans this week:

Customers in a small portion of Uptown will experience low water pressure from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday as workers replace a fire hydrant. The affected areas are along Huso and Short streets between St. Charles Avenue and Leake Avenue and along Pearl Street between Huso and Adams streets.
Both lakebound lanes of Calliope Street between Camp Street and St. Charles Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7:30 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday because of sewer work.
