One way traffic required MM-69.7 to MM-71.7

Due to the US ACOE Mat Sinking Operation at MM-70.7 LDB, and the ships at Dockside Anchorage tailing into the river, a VTS Measure is in effect for one-way traffic from MM-69.7 to MM-71.7 AHOP, until further notice.

For further information, contact VTS Lower Mississippi River.

--UPDATE-- 10/26/2022

The ship at Dockside Anchorage has been re-anchored and is no longer affecting river traffic. The VTS Measure for one-way traffic from MM-69.7 to MM-71.7 AHOP is rescinded. The Army Corps of Engineers Mat Sinking Unit remains on scene and continues laying mats at MM-70.7 LDB, monitoring VHF-FM CH-67 for safe passage.
