The Algiers Development District completed and paid for the Levee Bike Hike Trail construction in the fall of 2013 for the community of Algiers. Not only has the Bike and Hike Trail has been a wonderful asset for Algiers but also our neighboring towns of Gretna, the rest of the Westbank, and the Greater New Orleans area. In 2020 we have seen a tremendous increase in the usage of the levee trail. As someone who uses it daily, I understand how important it is to our community.
The lights on the levee went out at the same time one night per residents who reported it to the City of New Orleans. Our property management team along with the help of our Westbank Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority is working to get the issue diagnosed and resolved as quickly as possible.
Our goal is to have a final solution and approval to do the work by mid-November.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to resolve the issue.
