PROJECT STATUS REPORT as of 12-Aug-2022

Weeks Bay MC & SP TRANSFER

PROJECT LOCATION:

Weeks Bay is located in southwest Iberia Parish, immediately southwest of Weeks Island, LA, which falls within Region 3 of the Coast 2050 Management Plan.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Shoreline and bank erosion is occurring within this area as a result of heavy wind and wake activity. Openings along the shoreline, coupled with dredging of Commercial Canal, have resulted in increased tidal energy and adverse saltwater influence to interior wetlands. These openings also prevent Atchafalaya sediment-laden freshwater from reaching marshes within the western portion of the Teche/Vermilion Basin.

PROJECT STATUS: (Project Status Last Updated: 16-Jul-2013 )

This project was transferred out of the CWPPRA Program per Task Force decision on 4 Jun 2013. It was transferred to the Iberia Parish Levee, Hurricane, and Conservation District per their 3 Jun 2013 request.

FUND STATUS:

The current project estimate is $534,057 , which includes $530,891 for construction first costs, and $3,166 and $0 for 20 years of monitoring and operations and maintenance, respectively.
