City Breaks Ground on Lafitte Greenway (PHOTOS)


Photos by Rachel June 

Mayor Mitch, Jackie Clarkson, and other city officials broke ground today on the long-awaited Lafitte Greenway project. The $9.1 million endeavor was presented to the city in May of last year, and the bicycle and pedestrian path will stretch from Mid-City to the French Quarter. 

 

 

The corridor is bounded by Basin St., Lafitte St., St. Louis St., and North Alexander St., and it spans a total of six neighborhoods. Mayor Mitch shared some words at today's event before he got his hands dirty. 

 

"The Lafitte Greenway is an important, transformational project that will help spur community revitalization in the heart of New Orleans," Landrieu said. "This city-sponsored and funded project will convert a former industrial railway into a recreational green space that will promote healthy lifestyles and and serve as an asset for the entire city."
