The Center for Louisiana Studies is administering a Federal Highway Administration grant to increase accessibility along the Bayou Teche. A public meeting will be held in each of the four parishes along the waterway and the community is encouraged to attend and share ideas and suggestions for improving access for paddlers and other non-motorized recreational uses.
The meeting will provide an update on the project, identify all 8 site locations along the Bayou Teche, discuss floating dock options, and answer questions from the community. Surveys will be available for those who wish to remain anonymous.
