Riverfront trail work progresses
Work continued last week on the trail head of the Plaquemine Riverfront Recreational Trail. The trail head is around the Plaquemine Lock Historic Site and is a stamped concrete. That is Phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 is the extension of the trail to the North Plaquemine Park. These two phases will be completed by mid-November. Phase 3 will go out for bids in the Spring and will include extension of the trail southward to almost the Plaquemine ferry landing, with a ramp to the Fort Area Park, along with solar lighting of the entire trail, benches and other amenities.
