St. Bernard Parish Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee formed

The purpose of the committee is to coordinate bicycle and pedestrian improvement projects throughout the Parish in accordance with the St. Bernard Parish Bikeway and Pedestrian Plan. Committee members include Donald Bourgeois, Parish Director of Capital Projects; Susan Klees of Meraux representing Bike St. Bernard; and St. Bernard Parish District C Councilmember Howard Luna. Deborah Jan Fagan will serve as the committee’s technical consultant and coordinate the committee administrative tasks.

The Parish has received over $7 million in federal, state and private grants to fund a variety of projects such as multi-purpose trails, on-street bicycle lanes, signed bicycle routes, new sidewalks, crossing signals, and intersection improvements. As of April, 2018, 3.63 miles of bikeways have been installed in the Parish and several miles are currently under construction or will begin construction shortly.

Additional information on the Parish’s planned improvement is available on the St. Bernard Parish website under the Public Information tab and under the Bikeways and Trails heading at

The Committee will hold monthly meetings on the 3rd Monday of each month. Additional meetings will be called as the committee deems appropriate.
