Recently Updated Information:

  • ROAD WORK NOTICE #3 - N.J. THERIOT ROAD ELEVATION & IMPROVEMENTS:
    Road construction is ongoing on one of the port’s busiest roadways, N.J. Theriot Road. Barriere Construction is currently in the paving phase. Because this work is taking place at night, traffic delays are expected to be minimal.

    During lane closures, the flow of traffic will be controlled by flaggers stationed at roadside construction sites. Port Fourchon Harbor Police and Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office personnel 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 the remaining phase of this road improvement project, which is anticipated to be complete by the end of May 2015. Please pardon our progress as we work to maintain port roadways and improve port infrastructure.
