Bayou Boeuf Lock

 

Mariners are advised not to tie off to nor allow their vessels to rest against the south chamber wall at Bayou Boeuf Lock.  This wall is unstable and vessels tying to it or exerting force on it could cause it to fail.  Operators at the lock have been verbally advising mariners of this situation for some time.

This navigation bulletin confirms that this situation is expected to continue indefinitely and until further notice.
