|Construction continues at the intersection of the Lafitte Corridor recreation path and N. Carrollton Ave. Completion of the 2.6 mile path connecting the French Quarter in New Orleans and City Park is now set for early summer 2015|
|When the bike path opens, riders|
will have access to this bicycle
workstation complete with air pump
near N. Carrollton Ave.
When complete the paved path will connect Basin St., the northern boundary of the French Quarter with N. Alexander St., a street leading to the City Park Ave. entrance to City Park two blocks away.
In the Treme neighborhood, near the F.Q., the corridor is wide with space for developed ball fields and recreation areas. As the corridor moves northwest it narrows containing only the 12 foot wide path.
The park was to open in the late winter of this year but apparently the addition of a new bridge over a drainage canal and other items added after construction began delayed the project.
