New Orleans, LA – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) releases a sixth update on the post-Hurricane Isaac recovery efforts of the Crescent City Connection Division (CCCD). Although normal daily operations have resumed, a variety of repair and clean up efforts continue at CCCD ferry sites, administration buildings, bridges and roadways.

The substation generator, located adjacent to the CCCD Administration Building, has been repaired and will be tested before being cleared for use.
Ferry boat repairs are ongoing, but CCCD hopes to return one or two vessels to service this fall.
