A renovation project on Island Road in Terrebonne Parish (Pointe-aux-Chenes) is complete and open to the public! The project included the renovation of the existing Island Road boat launch area near Highway 665. It has parking for up to 12 trucks and trailers and one handicap accessible parking spot. The launch is 30 feet wide into water depths of approximately six to seven feet.
The project also included five fishing pier sites and parking along Island Road – a 2.5-mile stretch between Louisiana Highway 665 and Isle de Jean Charles that allows access to Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area. Each of the newly constructed road-side fishing sites (pictured here) has two piers that are eight feet wide by 56 feet long. Each site has parking for 11 vehicles.
