New Orleans, LA – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces La. 39 will remain closed at Braithwaite through this week, due to repair and remediation work at the Stolthaven chemical plant.
All traffic for La. 39 south of the Stolthaven chemical plant must use the Belle Chasse ferry. However, in anticipation of excessive traffic on the ferry in the evenings, work will be stopped and La. 39 will be opened to allow public travel, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., for access out of Plaquemines Parish.
