You should be just fine. If you lived on the other side of Napoleon (towards Canal) you could in a serious bind, but there are no parades that far over. If there's something in Mid-City it can also be avoided all sorts of ways. You could probably just take the Carrolton ramp by Xavier U. and cruise all the way. Certainly I-10 won't be blocked off once you're on it! Haha

Great to hear that! I was beginning to think I should stay in FL extra two days. Thanks for the reply!

Bacchus is Mar. 6. There will be a lot of traffic heading to the Napoleon/St. Charles area, from all over. Depending on what time you land, it could get hairy trying to get home.

Oh crap. You are in so much trouble. On that Sunday every street between the airport and Uptown will be blocked. I would think you would do better just walking.

OK you know I'm joking. As others said, you should be fine. You may hit a parade depending on what part of Uptown you live in but you should also be able to find a way around them.

And if you live by Audubon Park in Uptown you can always get off I-10 at Cauesway, take it to River Road and then take River Road to the park. This route should place you behind any parades in town and through any in Metairie.

Wow, I should start a new business with a book called, How To Get Around New Orleans During Mardi Gras.

And every year I could expand on it like, The Parish Getting Around After Talking To Benny Grunch.

How's about, Getting Through Canal Street With Mr. Bingo.

Or Spending Saturday Night With Morgus.

Even better. If your crawfish is sick who ya call, Al Scramuzza, The Seafood Doctor.
