Recently Updated Information:

    A major roadwork project on Port Fourchon’s N.J. Theriot Road is scheduled to begin later this month. The Greater Lafourche Port Commission is issuing this advance construction notice in an effort to help Port Fourchon users plan and prepare for upcoming road construction on one of the port’s busiest roadways, N.J. Theriot Road. Please pardon our progress as we work to maintain port roadways and improve port infrastructure.

    Barriere Construction is set to begin roadwork on January 29, 2015, with an anticipated completion date of May 29, 2015. The project’s improvements span the entire length of N.J. Theriot Road, from the Hwy. 3090 intersection to Norman Doucet Drive. Improvements include elevation of the roadway, drainage upgrades, shoulder work, and asphalt paving.

    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 from mid-March to mid-May. During lane closures, the flow of traffic will be controlled by flaggers stationed at roadside construction sites. Port Fourchon Harbor Police will be on scene to facilitate movements when necessary.

    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.

    The South Lafourche Levee District advises that 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.
