Plaquemines Parish ferry landing to reopen

Updated:

BELLE CHASSE, La. (AP) - The Pointe-a-la-Hache ferry landing in Plaquemines Parish is scheduled to reopen Thursday following the completion of a repair project.

Parish officials say the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has approved the ferry landing's reopening to cars and pickup trucks, but not school buses or dump trucks.

The repairs included replacing damaged deck boards and beams on the landing's substructure.

The ferry will operate daily from 6 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.
