Our Progress

The Magnolia and Dumaine Street bridges frame the graceful curve of Bayou St. John and the historic portage route to the Mississippi River. The vision for the restoration of these bridges will significantly enhance the public use, walkability, and overall quality of life for residents of Faubourg St. John and its many visitors. 

Bayou St. John, New Orleans, LA

The Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association (FSJNA) is committed to the preservation of the historical, commercial and community values of the neighborhood, one of the oldest in the City and even the nation. The FSJNA has a track record of volunteerism and civic engagement in support of an array of revitalization projects and other community events. In 1989, the FSJNA led a successful effort to provide minor repairs and beautification to the Magnolia Bridge, although neither structural concerns nor the remediation of lead paint were included in the scope of that work. Most recently, in 2002 the FSJNA executed a Cooperative Endeavor Agreement with the City of New Orleans to replace the wooden decking of the bridge.

 

All monies raised for Re-Bridge are under FSJNA's charitable 501c3 status.
