Abstract: The study area is located in southeastern Louisiana within the greater New Orleans-Baton Rouge Metropolitan Area (NOBRMA). As a transportation artery, the Mississippi River contributes substantially to both the NOBRMA and national economies. A navigable connection between the Mississippi River and Bayou Manchac along with channel improvements offers the potential for shortening travel distances for some of the shallow-draft traffic presently transiting the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. This report provides the results of a reconnaissance investigation and serves as an adequate basis to determine that further study of the navigation improvements is not warranted.
