The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will close Old Highway 11 in the northern portion of Pearl River Wildlife Management Area in St. Tammany Parish today (April 23) due to flooding.
Included in this closure is the Pearl River Honey Island Shooting Range located in the WMA. This closure is deemed necessary to ensure safety and prevent road damage. Once the water recedes, LDWF will inspect, repair and reopen the area once it is determined it is safe for travel.
The Pearl River WMA, which consists of 35,618 acres, is located approximately six miles east of Slidell and approximately one mile east of Pearl River.
