Montz levee path nearly complete, other recreation projects continue

Construction is progressing currently on a a Killona walking path.

A paved levee path in Montz that will complete the parish-to-parish connection between St. Charles and St.  John the Baptist should be complete within the next 30 days.

“In the previous administration there was a bike and walking master plan, and Montz was a big part of it,” Samantha de Castro, parish director of communications, said. “It will complete the parish-to-parish path on the east bank levee. The river was so high for so long last year that it prevented some work from taking place, but we hope to be done within the next 30 days.”

This final phase of the multi-use levee path in Montz was awarded nearly $1 million by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development in 2018, and project funding came through the Transportation Alternatives Program for fiscal year 2018-19.

De Castro said the work is part of many recreation projects happening around St. Charles Parish, including continued work on Ed Reed Park in St. Rose, construction of a Killona walking path and assembly of new park equipment for JB Green Park in Des Allemands.
