Port Fourchon Notice: Flotation Canal Dredging

August 31, 2023


Coastal Dredging will begin maintenance dredging in the Flotation Canal on September 2, 2023.

The dredge will be working 24/7 in Flotation Canal, near the mooring dolphins.  Dredging will start on the west end of the Flotation Canal near Bayou Lafourche and move east toward Pointe Fourchon.  The dredge will then move to the front commercial marina, where the project will end.

Please use caution when traveling in this area, keep a safe distance, and monitor VHF channel 13. This project should be complete by the end of February 2024.

The Greater Lafourche Port Commission wishes to thank you in advance for your cooperation in getting this dredging project completed in a safe and timely manner.
