Gov. John Bel Edwards is announcing a plan to help restore areas of Louisiana's coastline across several parishes.

Edwards spoke on Wednesday about his plan to spend over $250 million to restore almost 3,000 acres of beaches, dunes, marshes, and ridges.

Projects in line to receive funding include the Spanish Pass Marsh near Venice, the West Grand Terre Barrier Island in Grand Isle, and the Golden Triangle Marsh east of New Orleans.

Funding for the projects will come from settlements related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
