NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Army Corps of Engineers says it will close the Seabrook floodgate complex periodically to complete underwater repairs to the barge gate at the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal-Lake Borgne Surge Barrier.

The floodgate will be closed until about Dec. 23 from 4 a.m.-noon and 2-6 p.m. to control pressure at the surge barrier and permit divers to complete the repairs.
