Preparing for Gustav

Tropical Storm Gustav is expected to strengthen and make landfall in or near Louisiana on Tuesday, September 2. At this time it is uncertain whether Gustav will threaten the New Orleans area, but city and state agencies are advising local residents and businesses to begin preparing for an evacuation. Therefore, the SUSTA office will be closed on Tuesday, September 2.

SUSTA is taking every step necessary to ensure that staff members remain safe and operations continue to run as smoothly as possible. Backup procedures are in place and will be put into effect should there be an extended evacuation. Check for updates on office hours, contact information, and other news.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
