Inland Port Update presented at PPHTD meeting last week

Attendees at the Plaquemines Port Harbor & Terminal District meeting last week heard presentations on how the planned development of a new container terminal could impact the Plaquemines Parish economy from Sal Litrio of American Patriot Holdings (APH) and other ports leaders invested in the project. Litrico outlined thecompetitive advantages of the project, highlighting how the construction of this container terminal would create a “new North-South trade lane.” This trade lane would connect the Plaquemines Parish economy to the Midwest port economies, the national economy and, ultimately, the global economy. Litrico believes such a development would give Plaquemines a massive economic boost.

Rousselle pauses his plan to sue the Belle Chasse Bridge Project

Instead of litigation, the resolution now allows Plaquemines Parish Council Attorney Dannie Garrett to represent the port authority in a new round of negotiations involving the Belle Chasse Bridge.
