Mr. GO is GONE!
The Mississippi River-Gulf Outlet, also known as Mr. Go, has finally been closed by the Army Corps of Engineers. 352,086 tons of stone were piled in the channel at a cost of $11.2 million, the corps said.
The rock plug is 950 feet wide, has a 12-foot top crown, a 450-foot bottom width, and rises 7 feet above water level.
Mr. GO contributed to the storm surge which helped flood New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.
Goodbye Mr. Go , good to see you gone.
