About the Central Louisiana Regional Port (CLRP)
Central Louisiana Regional Port was commissioned in 1988 as a necessary part of the Louisiana and United States economies. This is a “barge-only” port, which means that, unlike larger Louisiana ports, Alexandria does not take on large vessels such as cruise ships. The port sees outbound barges that contain military cargo, citric acid, and biofuels.
The inbound cargo barges that come to this port often carry:
- Citric acid
- Biofuel materials
This particular area of the channel is shallow, at only nine feet deep. However shallow it may be, it still constitutes a United States navigable waterway. As such, it falls under the Jones Act, which means that seamen who are injured due to negligence on official waterways may be entitled to compensation for their losses.
