The Big River Coalition’s Corps 2020 Revetment Schedule and Transit Restrictions Update 9420 is here.
Please note the transit restrictions established around the revetment operations and rock work are tentative and subject to change based on the unknown nature of long-term river stage predictions.
The first revetment operations on the Mississippi River Ship Channel are scheduled to start at Algiers Point (Mile 93.7 Above Head of Passes) in early October (2020).
Please note that the transit restrictions at the Plaquemine Bend and St. Gabriel locations will cease daytime traffic through the immediate area.
The restrictions at both locations are the same:
“No southbound traffic and northbound traffic is limited to 25 feet or less during working hours. The Mat Sinking Unit will fold in at night – no night time transit restrictions are expected.”
The Coalition intends to issue our next update one week prior to the start of revetment operations at Algiers Point or when there are notable changes to the schedule of work.
