ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMITTING STATUS
COMPLETION DATE OF ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW AND PERMITTING
The project involves the relocation of the New Orleans and Gulf Coast (NOGC) Railway that serves Jefferson and Plaquemines Parishes in the New Orleans region of Southeast Louisiana. The NOGC currently interchanges with the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) in Westwego, Louisiana. The UPRR and NOGC alignment is located through a series of residential, commercial and industrial areas. There are approximately 280 public and private highway‐rail at‐grade crossings along its entire length within both the Westwego and Belle Chasse Subdivisions. Approximately 120 of the existing at-grade crossings are located in the study area. The purpose of the project is to improve saftey and mobility by reducing the number of at-grade rail crossings in densely populated areas of Jefferson Parish and Plaquemines Parish.
This project is funded for Preliminary Engineering/NEPA. Construction funding for this project has yet to be identified.
