There is a possibility that rail service could be a reality one day between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Money has recently been committed to conduct a feasibility study for a rail system between Louisiana’s two largest cities. The proposed rail could make commuting easy for visitors and business people alike, decreasing roadway congestion and getting people from Baton Rouge to New Orleans in an easy and timely manner.
Metropolitan Planning Organizations from both Baton Rouge and New Orleans are contributing funds to the study, as is the Baton Rouge Area Foundation. The rail system has long been a dream for Baton Rouge and New Orleans, and its plans were put on hold during the recession. If the feasibility study comes out shedding positive light on the rail system, service between Baton Rouge and New Orleans could become a reality in the future.
A rail system between the two cities would no doubt have a positive impact on Baton Rouge real estate. Contact us today to learn more about living in Baton Rouge. We can help you get to know our unique city as well as provide you with access to all Baton Rouge homes currently listed for sale.
