9:12 a.m. Morning Update

We’re waiting on the helicopter now for the morning flyover and daily operations continue. Clean up continues at the site and the bubbling in the waterways will be monitored, as well as continuous air testing by DEQ will be performed. For those who pass through Bayou Corne regularly, you’ve seen DOTD’s presence on the highway. They are monitoring and surveying LA-70 (including the bridges) for ground movement and wear from increased traffic, have developed a traffic contingency plan should it be needed, and established a GPS subsurface monitoring system. Expect to see them on the roadways and please be cautious of the highway workers.
