Monday, July 29, 2013

The Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development (DOTD) announces that ferry service between Algiers Point and Canal Street has been suspended pending repairs to the motor vessel servicing the Lower Algiers to Chalmette route.

The estimated time of service resuming at Algiers Point is unknown and DOTD will not have a definitive update until after electricians determine the required repair.

The Motor Vessel St. John was operating at Chalmette when the steering system caused a mechanical failure interrupting service at approximately noon, today. At 3 p.m., after multiple attempts to troubleshoot, DOTD made the decision to suspend service to the Canal Street ferry route and move the boat operating there, the M/V Levy, to Chalmette. Service at Chalmette resumed at approximately 4 p.m. There are currently no backup vessels for service; therefore, the estimated time of resumption of service at Canal Street will be announced following evaluation of the St. John.
 
DOTD apologizes for any inconvenience this interruption in service may cause. Pedestrians may use the RTA Bus Service as an alternate travel mode to the east bank. RTA bus routes and schedules can be found at www.norta.com or by calling 504-248-3900.
