Tammany Trace - Closures

 A four-part project to repair and reconstruct sections of the Tammany Trace is underway. Each of the four locations will undergo mill and overlay, and in some areas complete reconstruction. Approximately 3,562 linear feet of the path will be repaired when the project is completed.

The project will encompass four areas along the Trace including the first segment, 1155 linear feet, in the Covington area; the second location expected to begin in February in the Mandeville area, 826 linear feet; and the third and fourth locations in the Lacombe area, expected to begin in March and April, a combined 1581 linear feet. Each location will take approximately 30 days to complete, barring any weather delays. Segments of the Trace under construction will be closed to users. Parish Government will release maps in advance of construction for each area, as dates are subject to change. The budgeted cost for this project is $236,058, and Leon Lowe and Sons, Inc. is the contractor.  

 
 
These areas may be closed during the construction times. Please check with the Tammany Trace Trailhead office at 985-867-9490 for more information. We appreciate your patience.

About us

Originally a corridor for the Illinois Central Railroad, the Tammany Trace is now a hike and bike trail that spans from downtown Covington, through Abita Springs, Mandeville and Lacombe and ends in Slidell. A separate equestrian path parallels the Trace in several places. St. Tammany Parish government purchased the abandoned Illinois Central Railroad corridor on December 20, 1992. With the help of grants and federal dollars, St. Tammany Parish government has asphalted 31 miles, remodeled railroad trestles into pedestrian bridges, and maintained the Trace.
