Industrial Canal lock New Orleans

* I just read in the New Orleans paper that the Industrial Canal Lock used to exit the Mississippi R. though* *N. O.**eastbound will be close for repairs for 60 days. In their wisdom they do not give a start date for the work,*if*I am able to find out I will post that. Any one transiting New Orleans in the next*few of months should check on the status of the Lock. There is a route that will be used, it calls for traveling down river to Baptiste Collette Bayou near Venice using the bayou to get into *Chandeleur Island Sound and Mississippi Sound. Of course Westbound will be the same route but in reverse up to Algiers or Harvey ICW*locks on the West Bank.* Another option would be to go around south the*of mouth of the river.

Keep checking the USCG's local notice to mariners: http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/lnm/d8gm/
Nothing in there about the lock closure yet, so I assume it's not imminent... they usually give warnings pretty far ahead for that type of stuff.
