The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has closed Old Highway 11 in the Pearl River Wildlife Management Area (WMA) due to potential weather impacts from Hurricane Ida.

Included in this closure is the Pearl River Honey Island Shooting Range located in the WMA. 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.
