This year, New Orleans’ Superdome is home to the NFL’s Super Bowl!
In preparation for this great sporting event, the city of New Orleans is putting the French Quarter through a much needed “face lift” of it’s own (much like our recent one!). Throughout the next few months streets and sidewalks around the French Quarter are getting repaired, replaced and re-surfaced so that all of you football fans who are coming to cheer on your teams will have a safer experience when walking around our streets.
The construction on the sidewalk corners has finally hit Bourbon Street. This week the corner at Tropical Isle Original is being worked on. Despite the orange webbing, cones, flashing lights and “road closed” signs, Tropical Isle Original is still open!
As the construction progresses, we’ll likely see them working on the roads during the daytime hours as well as the sidewalks and corners near our Tropical Isle other locations. Tropical Isle Bourbon, at the corners of Orleans & Bourbon will remain open just like TI Original has throughout this construction … so don’t let those orange cones fool you, we are still open to get your Hand Grenades, Shark Attacks and Horny Gators.
If you ever noticed, there are not “telephone poles” in the French Quarter. All of our wiring is underground. That being said, sometimes this construction messes with our cable connection. When that happens both our wifi and live streaming webcams might have difficulty operating. Not to worry though, its usually a 1-2 hour issue and comes back when Cox Cable restores what went down.
So if you are a big fan of our webcams that stream our entertainers on stage live to your computer and you encounter a web cam not streaming, just check back in an hour or two. If it’s not back up, feel free to send a message through our contact form to give us a heads up.
As much as we like to be in 5 locations at once, sometimes we need a little help from you, our friends!
