The Big River Coalition confirmed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s (USACE) has adjusted the advertised schedule of work for revetment operations at Algiers Point based on the projected weather conditions associated with Hurricane Delta.
The Mat Sinking Unit (MSU) will cease revetment operations at Algiers Point at approximately 1200 hours tomorrow (Wednesday, October 7, 2020) and now plans to resume revetment operations at 0600 hours on Monday, October 12, 2020. The revetment operations are presently working at Algiers Point as scheduled from 0600 hours to 1900 hours with one-way transits being coordinated by the Coast Guard’s Lower Mississippi River Vessel Traffic Service and the Contact Pilot on the MSU.
The U.S. Coast Guard’s Marine Safety Information Bulletin (MSIB) as issued on October 2, 2020 is attached, please see the MSIB to review full details for Algiers Point – the main transit adjustment is related to one-way transits during working hours of the revetment unit.
The USACE will compile an updated schedule of work for revetment operations during the Hurricane Delta shutdown and the BRC will broadcast an update once that new schedule of work is available.
