Brief closure of Bayou Lafourche in Port Fourchon to submerge dredge line slated for Wednesday

Brief closure of Bayou Lafourche in Port Fourchon to submerge dredge line slated for Wednesday

Beginning on Wednesday, August 12 at 1 p.m., Bayou Lafourche will be closed between C-Port 1 and Flotation Canal, in the area just north of C-Port 1, while dredging contractors install submerged dredge line. Expect temporary delays for up to 2 hours while the line is being submerged.

Once the dredge pipe is in place, Coastal Dredging will be dredging in the general vicinity for approximately two weeks. For the duration of the project, mariners should travel at their lowest safe speed to minimize wake and ensure operational safety. Harbor Police Marine Patrol will be monitoring the area to facilitate movements when necessary.
