PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 30-Apr-2020

Terrebonne Bay Marsh Creation-Nourishment DEAUTHORIZED

PROJECT LOCATION:

TE-83 is located in Region 3, Terrebonne Basin, Terrebonne Parish. The project boundary begins along the southernmost contiguous point on the east bank of Bayou Terrebonne continuing east along the northern shoreline of Terrebonne Bay and ending at Bayou Chitique.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

This project would propose to strengthen approximately 16,800 ft of shoreline along the northern bank of Terrebonne Bay by creating a high marsh along the shoreline and plant with Spartina alternaflora. North of the shoreline, 235 acres of emergent marsh would be created in shallow open water and 550 acres of emergent marsh would be nourished by hydraulic dredge. Dredge material would be placed to a height of +1.5 NAVD 88 in the interior marshes and +2.0 along the shoreline. All constructed containment dikes would be sufficiently gapped or degraded no later than 3 years post construction to allow for fisheries access.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 14-Apr-2016 )

This project has been put on hold and no work is currently being done on the project.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $2,901,750 , which includes $2,901,750 for construction first costs, and $0 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
