Move stranded vehicles
Stranded vehicles and debris are making some intersections impassable. Residents with stranded vehicles in the middle of the roadway or an intersection are expected to move their vehicles to the side of the road, preferably a parking lane, immediately.
To reopen traffic flow, the Department of Public Works (DPW) and the New Orleans Police Department may have to "courtesy tow" vehicles. If the vehicle owner is present when tow truck arrives, DPW will tow the vehicle to the nearest area of safety. If the vehicle owner is not present, DPW will tow the vehicle to the City's Auto Pound lot at 400 N. Claiborne Ave. Owners must present identification to pick up their vehicles. The lot hours are 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. There is no charge for this service.
