ANDREW HIGGINS CORRIDOR
Dana Brown & Associates worked with the Regional Planning Commission and project engineers to develop the feasibility study and plan for revitalization of a highly visible street located in the heart of the Warehouse District of New Orleans. Andrew Higgins Street serves as the main vehicular and pedestrian corridor within the World War II Museum’s campus and connects the Museum to the Morial Convention Center located at the Mississippi River. The high-intensity pedestrian movement between these two major attractions required substantial improvements to enhance the quality of pedestrians’ experience and their safety. The proposed revitalization is designed to provide ample space for pedestrians, substantial tree plantings for shade, and green infrastructure for stormwater management. DBA played a key role in community engagement, developed the Corridor’s flood mitigation strategy, and designed streetscape and green infrastructure improvements.
