SLLD Notice of Bayou Lafourche Closure for Leon Theriot Lock Maintenance:
Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Bayou Lafourche and Local Waterways Users,
Per the South Lafourche Levee District, navigation through Bayou Lafourche will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, January 20, 2021, from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. as part of the Leon Theriot Lock Maintenance project.
Please make note of this marine closure and plan your navigation through Bayou Lafourche accordingly.
More updates, including future closures, will be posted as we receive them.
Please note the potential for longer wait times and fewer openings in Bayou Lafourche at the Leon Theriot Lock in Golden Meadow as the lock structure undergoes required ten-year maintenance. Be aware of the work in that area and to use extreme caution when passing through the bayou.
Thank you for your patience during this maintenance project.
ROAD CONSTRUCTION NOTICE- LA 1 ASPHALT OVERLAY PROJECT TO CAUSE INTERMITTENT DELAYS:
The Greater Lafourche Port Commission was made aware of an LADOTD-led road construction project beginning on August 17 that will affect tenants and users of Port Fourchon.
The section of LA 1 that will be affected at the onset of this project is from the Leeville Bridge to the intersection of LA 3235, continuing down LA 1 before ending at Falgout Lane in Golden Meadow.
The contractor started on August 17 with pavement patching and will continue with additional improvements such as drainage work and an asphalt overlay.
DOTD said the plan as of now is to work from 7 AM to 7PM Monday through Saturday until Spring 2021.
Expect travel delays during this construction work, with intermittent lane closures and some delay in traffic movements through the construction area, especially during the paving phase of the project later this year.
Please use caution when traveling through the construction area and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment. Thank you for your patience during this scheduled road improvement project.
