    The South Lafourche Levee District advises that due to maintenance at the Ted Gisclair Floodgate in Larose, Bayou Lafourche will be closed to all navigational travel in the Larose area for 48 consecutive hours beginning at 7:00 A.M. on Thursday, December 18, 2014. SLLD anticipates this closure to end on Saturday, December 20th at approximately 7:00 P.M. Updates will be issued as they become available.

    Both the Ted Gisclair Floodgate in Larose and the Leon Theriot Lock in Golden Meadow are both open to marine traffic at this time.

    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 at www.slld.org or by calling the South Lafourche Levee District office at (985) 632-7554.

    On December 11, 2014, a contractor for the Greater Lafourche Port Commission began a bucket dredging project in Slip A of the Northern Expansion.

    Coastal Dredging will be working in Slip A for approximately 14 days. They will be bucket dredging and moving material by barge, so there will be no submerged lines.

    Please use caution when traveling in this area. Contact the dredge and Port Fourchon Harbor Police at VHF channel 13 for information.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation in getting this Slip A dredging completed in a safe and timely manner.

    The Fourchon Swing Bridge just south of the Port Fourchon Public Boat Launch will be closed to vessel traffic until further notice due to repairs being made. Motorists will not be affected due to this closure.
