Louisiana, Calcasieu Lock Repairs

Written by Chuck Baier
October 31, 2019

Continuing until November 23, 2019, mariners are advised that Calcasieu Lock will have intermittent delays to navigation between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., daily, due to work being performed by a U.S. Government Hired Labor Unit. The work will require the Lock to operate one set of gates while another set will be fitted with new drive motors. During this time, mariners are advised that the lock will be operated similar to a salt water control structure, and vessels will have to navigate the lock with various water flows once the gates are opened. Calcasieu Lock Lockmaster, Charles Hebert, can be contacted, at (337) 477-1482. The points of contact with the USACE New Orleans District are Victor Landry, at (504) 862- 2407 and Robert Morgan, at (504) 862-2320. Chart 11339
