POINTE COUPEE PARISH (FOX44) - The final gate on the Morganza Spillway will close at the end of day on July 7th.
The Army Corps of Engineers opened 17 gates in May to divert rising flood waters from the Mississippi River into the Atchafalaya River.
It was the first time since 1973 the spillway had been opened.
