Tammany Trace patrons can expect to see new, upgraded signage along the 28-mile Rails-to-Trails conversion within the coming weeks. The signage, made possible with support from the Northshore Homebuilders Charitable Trust, retains features from the previous version, while offering greater detail including: a larger, more thorough map with icons indicating points of interest and the amenities offered at each; the option to use a Quick Response, or QR code, to access the entire library of Tammany Trace Rules with your mobile device; and an updated mileage chart including the newly opened extension into Camp Salmen Nature Park.
The original signs, also produced with the support of the Northshore Homebuilders Charitable Trust, were produced in 2009. Mike Cooper, St. Tammany Parish President, says he encourages local patrons and visitors to utilize these maps to make the most of their time on the Tammany Trace. The Northshore Homebuilders Charitable Trust contributed just over $3,000 to the production of the signs. Tammany Trace crews expect to have all signage installed by the end of February 2021.
