New Orleans City Hall has published on online map locating portable toilets that the public may use on Mardi Gras

What a relief! The tech wizards at New Orleans City Hall have published an online map showing locations of portable toilets that the public may use on Mardi Gras.

It's not surprising that the most can be found along the parade route through the Central Business District, with about 64 at Lee Circle and two batches of 32 on the upriver and downriver sides of Lafayette Square.

Smaller collections will be on the French Quarter side of these four Canal Street intersections: Burgundy, Daupine, Bourbon and Royal streets. A few more are to be  on Esplanade Avenue at Bourbon, Royal and Chartres streets.

In the Uptown area, several toilets are to be placed at the beginning of parade routes and major intersections, including St. Charles and Louisiana avenues, St. Charles and Napoleon avenues, Prytania Street at Napoleon and several Napoleon locations hear Tchoupitoulas Street. There also will be toilets at Tchoupitouas near Soniat Street and Tchoupitoulas at Louisiana.
