The completed LAMRT Feasibility Study will be presented at the October CRPC Transportation Policy Committee meeting, and you are welcome to attend this public meeting.
Eric Poche, of the SJB Group (one of the authors) will present the completed study at the meeting 1:30 PM Tuesday October 26 at the Bluebonnet Library.
The study describes trail benefits, trail dimensions and amenities, cost estimate, and logical pieces for implementation. When all phases are complete, the trail will run between Audubon Park in New Orleans and Downtown Baton Rouge. The study was jointly funded by the US Corps of Engineers and Parish governments along the way (East Baton Rouge, Iberville, Ascension, St. James, St. John the Baptist, and St. Charles)
Parish Presidents from the Baton Rouge MPO (including trail participants East Baton Rouge, Iberville, and Ascension parishes) are expected to be at the meeting to receive the document.
This is another milestone towards in improving livability in our communities.
