As part of the nearly two-mile surge barrier, three closable gates are being constructed in the barrier, to allow the passage of vessel traffic from Bayou Bienvenue and the Gulf Inter-Coastal Waterway. MRGO has been decommissioned and will be further blocked by the completed barrier. Work proceeds on the construction of the barrier as an assembly line of barges with different tasks move along the line of the barrier.
