NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA REGIONAL RAILROAD PLANNING DEMONSTRATION STUDY. PHASE I: INVENTORY AND PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION
The report constitutes Phase I of the New Orleans, Louisiana Regional Railroad Planning Demonstration Study. The New Orleans Metropolitan Area is composed of the four parishes of Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard, and St. Tammany. Phase I involves the collection of an inventory of existing railroad operations; an evaluation of the relationship of the railroads to other transportation corridors; a definition of specific areas of concern to the railroads and the community; and a recommended program for further study. A sampling of railroad freight traffic processed in the New Orleans area was taken for a 14-day period in August 1974 using train consist reports and demurrage records as source documents. The areas of major concern to the communities and the railroads were obtained and are included in the report; a recommended program for further study is developed stressing rail system efficiency and the integration of future objectives of the railroads with those of the region.
