Project Description

This first local project is the reconstruction of the Lee’s Landing boat launch, which is in very poor physical condition, and has been severely damaged by a number of man-made and storm incidents. This boat launch is important because it is the primary public access point to the lower portions of the Tangipahoa River and into Lake Pontchartrain. The site of this facility is located on public property owned by Tangipahoa Parish.This boat launch is used by emergency responders, as well as the general public, and by the State Wildlife agents as an entry point into the vast Joyce Wildlife Management area, owned by the State and bordering this area. This use of the boat launch is essential, especially because of it as a main access point used by the public to access fishing grounds, and for those responders to incidents such as the BP oil spill. The proposed project is an eligible Restore Act Activity 6, “infrastructure benefiting the local economy and ecological resources”; and also Activity 9, “Promotion of tourism in the Gulf Coast region, including recreational fishing”.
