Accessing Children's Hospital through Magazine Street Roadwork

The City of New Orleans has implemented a roadwork and infrastructure restoration program called RoadworkNOLA which will affect access to Children's Hospital via Magazine St. The complex roadwork will likely stretch into 2023, so Children's Hospital will update this page as construction progresses. Be sure to check back here before driving to the hospital for updates on detours and reroutes, and please allow yourself extra time to get to your appointment given the delays this roadwork may cause.

Suggested reroutes:

  • Those visiting Children's Hospital and navigating through Leake Ave. (River Rd.) will be temporarily rerouted to St. Charles Ave.
  • To access the hospital from Leake Ave., be sure to follow the blue hospital signs found along Leake Ave. and St. Charles Ave. Below is a detailed map on how to access the hospital during the roadwork.
