A rock embankment project near the Belle Chasse / Scarsdale ferry landing will force ferry service to halt during two consecutive weekends.

The ferry will not operate on Saturday, October 31 and Sunday, November 1, then again on Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will complete a rock embankment project along the river batture during that time.

Plaquemines Parish officials say the Pointe-a-la-Hache ferry can be used as an alternate route.
