Landbridge Between Caillou Lake and Gulf of Mexico -Suspended

The Maintain Land Bridge between Caillou Lake and the Gulf of Mexico project is a shoreline protection and marsh restoration project designed to reduce the current degradation of the land bridge between the Gulf of Mexico and Caillou Lake.  The project was authorized under the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 - Section 7006(e)(1) and the State of Louisiana’s Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) is the   cost-share partner in the development and implementation of this project.  The study area, approximately 60 square miles in size, is located in south central Terrebonne Parish, about 38 miles southeast of Morgan City, Louisiana.  The land bridge area encompasses approximately 2,800 acres of wetlands and is located between Caillou Lake (also known as Sister Lake) to the north and the Gulf of Mexico, and between Bayou Grand du Large and Bayou Grand Caillou.
