Release Date: 08/18/2011

Aug. 18, 2011 -- Sherburne Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is again accessible via US Hwy. 190 now that LA 975 has been reopened.

LA 975 had been closed due to flood impacts from spring floodwater. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development recently completed necessary repairs and determined the road safe for vehicular traffic.

Big Alabama Road, within the WMA, is the only remaining interior roadway closed.  LDWF will provide notification once repairs to Big Alabama Road have been completed.  Sherburne WMA includes acreage in St. Martin, Pointe Coupee and Iberville Parishes.

The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana's abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.louisiana.gov on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ldwffbor follow us on Twitter @LDWF.
