Baton Rouge, LA - With the threat of potential impacts due to Hurricane Marco and Tropical Storm Laura, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) would like to remind motorists that all ferry service in the state must be suspended when tropical storm force winds reach ferry crossings.
