Overview / Comments


15 miles downriver from downtown New Orleans, this site is located between the Port of New Orleans and the Plaquemines Port District. This deep water rail served site provides substantial Mississippi River frontage and main thoroughfare access to Highway 23.

The site has less than 1% impacted wetlands (only 3.7 acres). There is an existing permit for barge fleeting facilitating 152 barges and there is ample remaining river frontage for additional fleeting or other uses. In 2014 the Army Corps of Engineers issued a permit for a rail loop, a ship dock, and a barge receiving station which were not constructed.

Located in close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, this site is suited to accommodate industries such as oil and gas, grain, chemical, steel, and others for docks, intermodal container ports, bulk cargo operations, break bulk operations, or other uses.
