The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (NORTA) earlier this week resumed streetcar service on its Riverfront Line, 23 days after service was suspended due to the partial collapse of the Hard Rock Hotel under construction near Canal Street.

Crews were working on the hotel when a portion of the building collapsed, killing three and injuring more than 19 people, local media reported.

Streetcar service remains suspended on the Rampart-St.Claude routes, and on portions of the Canal-Cemeteries and Canal-City Park/Museum routes.
