Working on the wharf

Construction is underway on a roughly $1.7 million project to redo Morgan City’s riverfront wharf. The project involves replacing and extending Morgan City’s riverfront dock by 220 feet. The dock is currently about 800 feet long. This morning, workers were preparing the site to start driving piles, which should begin Friday, Mayor Frank “Boo” Grizzaffi said. The estimated completion date of the project is mid-2016, Grizzaffi said. The wharf is currently closed to the public for construction.
