NEW ORLEANS - Another round of street repairs officially came to an end on Monday.

Work has been underway on Esplanade Avenue and City Park Avenue since March.

The $5 million project focused on City Park Avenue from Canal Boulevard to Orleans Avenue and on Esplanade Avenue from Moss Street to Claiborne Avenue.

The two lane road has been repaved and transformed into one lane each direction for cars and one lane for bikes.

Some parts of Esplanade have not yet been re-striped for the new lanes.

The work also included installing handicap ramps, pavement patching and curb repairs.

Paths to Progress is bigger than this one project. It represents a more than $90 million investment to improve over 60 street segments in Orleans and Jefferson parishes.

The group has also recently targeted Williams Boulevard and St. Bernard Avenue. 

Big makeovers were already completed in the French Quarter and New Orleans East.

The ribbon cutting ceremony is at 10:30 a.m. at Cabrini High School.
