Project Description

The project will involve improvements to Grand Isle State Park, including upgrading an existing pier to improve fishing access; upgrading three existing rock jetties and constructing two groins at three locations (the east end of Grand Isle at Grand Isle State Park, the west end of Grand Isle at the Grand Isle West property, and the Fort Livingston property) to provide habitat for shallow-water, nearshore marine species of recreational value; and repairing and upgrading existing roads and nature trails damaged by repeated flooding. The project will provide improved fishing and recreational use of the state park and also provide protection of coastal, nearshore marine habitats and inland infrastructure.
