Project Description

The Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Recreational Use Enhancement project will consist of three discrete elements: 1) pirogue pullovers, 2) a pirogue launch, and 3) fishing piers at water control structures. These activities will occur within the Montegut, Point-aux-Chenes, and Grand Bayou Management Units of the WMA, as well as the designated limited access areas (LAA). These features will enhance recreational access and provide improved recreational facilities for fishing, hunting, and boating. The design for the three items above, and a boat launch renovation at the Island Road Fishing Piers, is included in this project. The construction stage of the boat ramp renovation is handled by a separate project (Island Road Fishing Piers, Project ID 149) and construction of the three elements listed above included in this project.
