Recently Updated Information:

    The South Lafourche Levee District has advised that 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. Therefore, beginning at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, March 24th and continuing through Thursday, March 26th, the bayou will be closed during daylight hours from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 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, floodgates and locks may close at any time without notice. Updates on the Larose and Golden Meadow floodgates and lock operations may be obtained at www.slld.org or by calling the South Lafourche Levee District office at (985) 632-7554.

    A major roadwork project on Port Fourchon’s N.J. Theriot Road is underway. Port Fourchon users are encouraged to plan and prepare for 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 began 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.
