Effective immediately, the Galliano Pontoon Bridge will be closed to marine and vehicular traffic to replace a broken cable. We anticipate that the bridge will be back in service by 3:30 PM. Thank you for your patience as we work to complete the repair.
Lafourche Parish Lifting Facemask Requirements
President Archie Chaisson announced that, with recent news of Governor John Bel Edwards’ lifting the mask mandate in Louisiana and returning authority to local businesses and governments, Lafourche Parish would no longer require masks to be worn in Parish-operated buildings.
“Now that vaccines are more easily available, I am lifting the facemask requirement, but I encourage everyone to continue to follow safe practices and social distancing.”
President Chaisson stated that businesses and other government agencies in the Parish could make their own decisions on mask requirements.
In line with the Governor’s announcement in his press conference, Lafourche Parish will opt out, and the mask mandate will end at midnight, April 27th, 2021.
The Cote Blanche Bridge is closed to vehicular traffic until further notice. The bridge is closed due to mechanical failure with the motor that controls the aprons for the approaches to the bridge.
President Chaisson described his vision to unite Lafourche Parish Government his first year in office by unveiling a new logo which represented the first step to establishing a unified brand. “Following an unprecedented year, we are excited to announce phase two of our rebranding efforts by unveiling our new website,” said President Chaisson. “From the beginning, we knew creating a unified professional brand would be important in the upcoming marketing of our parish to outside businesses. Our new website offers users the experience of easy navigation while representing who we are with an unapologetically Cajun introduction,” said President Chaisson.
Residents will continue to see the brand transformation through new media content. Core values of innovation, service, integrity, and transparency are the spirit of the brand. Lafourche Parish Government’s mission is to help provide quality public service to residents which focuses on public safety, economic growth, quality neighborhoods as well as new and improved infrastructure.
