Release Date: 10/27/2016

Oct. 27, 2016 - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has temporarily closed East Road to all traffic at Russell Sage Wildlife Management Area (WMA).
Replacement of the U.S. Highway 80 bridge across the LaFourche Canal has forced the closure. Construction activities will temporarily block vehicular, as well as ATV/UTV, access to the entrance of East Road. When the entrance is clear of equipment and construction activities, the road will be reopened.
Russell Sage WMA is located in Morehouse, Ouachita, Richland, and Caldwell parishes and is approximately seven miles east of Monroe and ten miles west of Rayville.
