It's the site of the former office destroyed by Katrina
The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles has reopened its office located at 100 Veterans Memorial Blvd. in New Orleans. The original building was destroyed by the floodwaters that followed Hurricane Katrina.
The new office, which will serve the east banks of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish, features the latest technology in motor vehicle services to assist customers with driver's license and identification cards, road skills testing, and vehicle registration.
OMV Commissioner Stephen Campbell said the state is also working on plans to open express locations in Kenner and eastern New Orleans.
