Hours of operation will be between 0600 – 1800 CT each day. The closures will only occur during hours of operation. The floating plant will be moored in the harbor after hours so that navigation traffic is unaffected outside of the hours of operation.

The M/V George W. Jones and M/V Lucedale will be monitoring marine channel 13. Vessel operators should exercise caution when transiting the area.
