TRAFFIC ALERT: Belle Chasse ferry to close this weekend

PLAQUEMINES PARISH, LA (WVUE) - Drivers who take the Belle Chasse ferry will need to find an alternate route on Saturday and Sunday.

An Army Corps of Engineers rock embankment project near the Belle Chasse/Scarsdale ferry landing is prompting the closure.

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