Potential Closure of Houma Navigational Canal Floodgate October 25-26

There is a strong potential that the Houma Navigational Canal (Bubba Dove) flood gate will be closed by the Terrebonne Parish Levee and Conservation District after 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 25, 2019, due to the anticipated development of Tropical Depression Seventeen. The closure will restrict access to Houma and the GIWW from Terrebonne Bay/GOM. Anticipated closure of the floodgate will last from 4:00 p.m. Friday, October 25, 2019 to 7:00 a.m. Saturday, October 26, 2019.

During this time, all mariners are urged to use an alternate route. Click here for the most up to date information. For more information, like the Terrebonne Levee & Conservation District  page on Facebook or follow @TerrebonneLevee on Twitter.
