Do they mean the part that bridges the bayou?

Probably could just leave that out, right?
The company building the Bayou Bridge pipeline asked a federal judge to suspend her Friday order stopping construction of the cross-state crude oil line, saying the stoppage would cost the company almost $1 million daily.

In court papers filed Monday in Baton Rouge federal court, Bayou Bridge Pipeline LLC also told U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick that the company is interpreting her order as only halting pipeline construction inside the Atchafalaya Basin.
Update:  Putting this limited interpretation of the order into practice led to confrontations with protesters this afternoon.
