Welcome to your link to Port Fourchon news! Information is updated when there is breaking news that affects Port Fourchon business.
Recently Updated Information:

    According to DOTD, the Golden Meadow Bridge crossing Bayou Lafourche in Golden Meadow, LA will be closed to vehicular traffic until further notice due to a mechanical failure in one (1) of the three (3) gearboxes used in lifting and lowering the movable span. The bridge will remain in the “open to marine” position until the repairs are completed.

    Alternate bridges available for crossing Bayou Lafourche are: New Larose Vertical Lift Bridge, 15.1 miles north of the project, and the Galliano Vertical Lift Bridge, 6.6 miles north of the project.

    DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.

    The South Lafourche Levee District advises that the Ted Gisclair Floodgate in Larose and the Leon Theriot Lock in Golden Meadow, are both open 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.
