The repaving of Bourbon Street has made it from Canal Street to Orleans. But the work crews have "demobilized" for Mardi Gras, says New Orleans deputy CAO Ramsey Green.

"When I say 'demobilized,' that's not leaving up any fencing, that's temporary asphalt. The street will look like there's no construction going on," said Green. "Be aware that the moment Ash Wednesday starts, that work's going to start back up."

The city of New Orleans says Phase 2 of the Bourbon Street repairs are more than 50 percent complete.
