The coal exporting business is expanding in Plaquemines Parish and it's expected to generate hundreds of good paying jobs.

But before those jobs come, a lot of prep work must be done.

One project that must be completed first is one that will move the railroad between Plaquemines Parish and Jefferson Parish to better facilitate the increase of activity generated by the coal facility.

Director of Economic Development for Plaquemines Stan Mathes was in the studio Wednesday to bring us up to date on that project and the Peters Road bypass.
