Larose floodgate closure extended through Thursday

Larose floodgate closure extended through Thursday

Due to delays with the installation of the sector gates, the contractor has requested additional closures of Bayou Lafourche at the Larose (Ted Gisclair) Floodgate. Beginning at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, March 24 and continuing through Thursday, March 26, the bayou will be closed during daylight hours from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each day while the gates are being installed. The bayou will be open at night for marine traffic.

Extreme caution is advised when traveling through the floodgates. The Captain should always proceed under the direction of the Lock Master. Any damages will become the responsibility of the boat owner.

Please be aware that whenever high tides occur, either or both floodgates may close at any time without notice.
Updates on both floodgates may be obtained through our website at, on Facebook (search South Lafourche Levee District) by calling the On-Call Personnel listed above, or by calling the South Lafourche Levee District office at (985) 632-7554.
