Point Aux Chenes WMA Enhancements

The Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Enhancement Project includes seven boat access fishing piers and five road access fishing piers, as well as a pirogue launch, renovated boat launch, and pirogue pullover. The $5 million recreational use project, located in Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes, is funded by Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) dollars allocated from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement. The project was approved as part of the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group’s (LA TIG) fourth restoration plan.

Project engineering is being completed by Delta Coast Consultants, LLC, with project construction by Low Land Construction, Co. and Circle Construction, LLC. Total project completion is anticipated for 2022.
