Abstract: The Houma Navigation Canal is a Federally maintained waterway that connects the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in Houma with the Gulf of Mexico. The HNC is located in south-central Terrebonne Parish, approximately 50 miles southwest of New Orleans. The project area is within the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary, one of the most expansive and productive estuaries in the United States. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has prepared this Draft Integrated Feasibility Report/Environmental Impact Statement for the HNC Deepening Project. Houma Louisiana is a large center for shipyard work for the offshore marine sector. The shipyard work consists of the construction of new vessels and the regular repairs of licensed vessels. A deeper waterway is needed to reduce future waterborne transportation costs and allow the efficient passage of large oil and gas sector barges, new vessels built at the Houma shipyards, and vessels working in the Gulf.
