If you’re headed down Louisiana Highway 39 soon, be aware that the roadway south of Braithwaite is still closed due to work at the Stolthaven chemical plant. Flooding caused by Hurricane Isaac there pushed railroad cars, some containing hazardous materials, off the tracks, so the cleanup continues. All traffic for La. 39 south of the plant must use the Belle Chasse ferry. However, DOTD reports that 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. Good luck and God Bless to our fellow Louisianians down there with the cleanup and recovery!

 

DOTD will notify the traveling public when the road fully reopens.
