BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – This is a heads up for those that use the Plaquemine Ferry. You may want to make other plans on Thursday, October 8.
Hurricane Delta continues to force changes in the area and the Plaquemine Ferry is no different.
DOTD released this statement about the closure of the Plaquemine Ferry on Thursday:
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will stop operations of the second Plaquemine ferry beginning at 9:00 am on Thursday, October 8, as Hurricane Delta continues its path toward Louisiana.
