Paris Avenue canal covering Mirabeau Avenue toward Hibernia "before"
Attached text: Paris Avenue canal is being covered between Mirabeau (above) and Hibernia at a cost of $660,000, thus eliminating open drainage ditch on one of the city's important streets. Covering of canals increases drainage capacity of canal, eliminates danger hazard and provides right of way for street widening and beautification.
