A third confederate monument in New Orleans was removed in the middle of the night.
Parking enforcement personnel will be monitoring illegal parking, including blocked hydrants, driveways and sidewalks, or cars parked within 20 feet of a crosswalk, intersection or stop signs. Details on any route changes are available at www.norta.com.
Others felt the city has bigger problems Mayor Mitch Landrieu is ignoring other than removing the monuments.
New Orleans last week removed a statue of Confederate icon Jefferson Davis from Mid-City as part of a "march to reconciliation". The city has not given a time frame for Lee's removal due to "intimidation, threats, and violence, serious safety concerns remain". The local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans sued the city in an effort to block the plan, and in March a U.S. Court of Appeals found in favor of the city, clearing the path for removal.
Times Square crash suspect court-martialed
New York Police say they don't suspect a link to terrorism, but a bomb squad was called as a precaution to check the wreckage. An 18-year-old woman was killed and 22 other victims were injured, including the woman's 13-year-old sister, officials said .
Those calling for their removal said they glorify a shameful part of the city and country's history. The final resting place of Beauregard's statue will be considered separately because of legal issues. Lee's is the last to be removed in accordance with a 2015 City Council vote. The demonstration attracted more than 700 people, including counter-protesters who carried Confederate flags.
But backlash has been building against removing Confederate monuments.
But for many in this majority black city, the monuments pay homage to a history of slavery and segregation. "They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history", Landrieu said.
The monuments, which were erected between 1884 and 1915, are seen by many residents as symbols of white supremacy and racism. It is the third monument to come down in the city. At that time, the 1932 white supremacist plaque was covered with a new slab of granite honoring "those Americans on both sides of the conflict who died".

Beauregard is prepared for removal from the entrance to City Park in New Orlean. The city of New Orleans plans to take down the confederate statue on Friday, May 18, 2017, completing the so.
The statue of Lee, who commanded Confederate armies against the Union in the Civil War, was the most prominent of the four statues, his bronze figure standing almost 20 feet (6 meters) tall in uniform, arms crossed defiantly, gazing northward. This is hard to comprehend for a number of reasons-the monument is on the National Register of Historic Places, its removal disgraces Louisiana people of Creole descent, and Beauregard was one of Louisiana's first civil rights leaders. Kennedy says he loves his native South.
