The LCRC facility is currently operational, but operating in the after-hours mode. The loading dock is accepting normal deliveries, but the parking garage and facility remain accessible via key fob only. If there are any required visitors, they must enter through the front door (Tulane Avenue entrance) of the building with the aid of security; visitors must also be met at the security desk and escorted further (to and from the security desk). Fortunately, our building was not damaged in the storm. We are allowing limited access, but are ready and eager to welcome back our research community. Our partner institutions remain closed, but the LCRC is functional to ensure that our researchers can continue their important work when necessary.

With the voluntary evacuation, we may not have physical security presence at the building after 2PM today. Safety resources will be available on call via the security phone 504-756-3784
The building will remain on after hours status. However, the access system is in fail-secure mode. In the event of a power failure, this means that fobs will not work and the grill gate will not lift.
We ask that researchers refrain from coming to the building Sunday and Monday. We will continue to monitor the situation and advise if anything changes.

We have been monitoring Hurricane Ida and implemented the LCRC's hurricane plan, earlier today.
The LCRC facility will operate in the after hours mode Saturday, August 28, 2021 through Monday, August 30, 2021 along with our partner institutions. The LCRC facility will remain fully secured and the loading dock will be non-operational. However, researchers will still be able to access the facility; this includes the parking garage (key fob required).
If you need to report hazardous conditions on the LCRC campus, please contact our security personnel at 504-210-1842. Our facilities personnel will also be monitoring the building systems during this time.
