Jan. 30, 2017 – The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has begun replacing Big Roaring Bayou Bridge at Big Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA). Fina Road from Louisiana Hwy. 4 to Trusler Lake Road will be closed during the duration of the bridge replacement work.
The project is scheduled to be completed by May 2017.
Big Lake WMA, which consists of 19,231 acres, is located in Franklin, Madison and Tensas parishes approximately 12 miles east of Gilbert. The eastern boundary of Big Lake WMA is contiguous with a portion of the western boundary of Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge. Together, these areas form one of the largest remaining tracts of bottomland hardwood forests that historically composed the lower Mississippi River floodplain from lower Illinois to the Gulf of Mexico.
