Detour necessary to access Sherburne WMA’s South Farm via I-10

Levee Access Road bridge out until May, 2014

Anyone needing access to Sherburne Wildlife Management Area’s South Farm from I-10 in Ramah will need to detour while a bridge is replaced, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is replacing the Levee Access Road bridge over the borrow pit, and the anticipated reopening is not expected until May, 2014.

Until the bridge replacement is complete, access to Sherburne’s South Farm from the Ramah exit on I-10 will be as follows: From the I-10 Ramah exit, drive north on La. Hwy. 76, traveling 5.2 miles to Musson Lane. Turn left on Musson Lane, travel 1.1 miles to East Guide Levee Road and turn left again, traveling south 3.5 miles to the South Farm check station.

Sherburne WMA is located within the Morganza Floodway portion of the Atchafalaya Basin, between the Atchafalaya River and the East Protection Levee in Pointe Coupee, St. Martin and Iberville parishes.
