The Krewe of Endymion has not yet said how the parade will avoid the area around the partially collapsed construction site of the Hard Rock Hotel. The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate reports the krewe is still discussing alternates with city officials.

According to the report, the krewe still intends to roll on its Mid-City route down Orleans Avenue to North Carrollton, then Canal Street. But how it intends to avoid the Hard Rock area in the 1000-block of Canal en route to the Endymion Extravaganza is to be determined.

Endymion already had to change part of its usual routine this year by changing the location of the Extravaganza to the Morial Convention Center. It's usual home, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, will be in the midst of its first phase of a nearly half-billion dollar renovation.

Endymion rolls the Saturday before Mardi Gras, February 22.
