The cleanup on the riverfront continues since the June flooding on the Red River.

Shelly Ragle, Shreveport Parks and Recreation Director tells KEEL News the cleanup of the riverfront moves into high gear this week. She says crews have been piling the sand up into big hills ready for removal. We asked what happens with all that sand now?
