Riverfront Recreational Trail gets benches, trash receptacles

Special to The Post South
Benches and trash receptacles line the Plaquemine Riverfront Recreational Trail on the Mississippi River levee.

Just in time for the holidays, the benches and trash receptacles have been added to Phase 1 and 2 of the Plaquemine Riverfront Recreational Trail on the Mississippi River levee, complete with a beautiful view of the river. Phases 1 and 2 are about 98 percent complete. Phase 3 will extend the trail to almost the ferry landing and add solar lighting and other amenities. It will begin next Spring.
