NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An agreement announced this week calls for the Port of New Orleans to give the city two wharves at the edge of the French Quarter in exchange for the city-owned Public Belt Railroad.
The New Orleans Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2s8XQou ) the deal will give the city control of more riverfront area. It will open up uninterrupted access for the public to a 3-mile stretch of the riverfront.
