Louisiana Approves Supplemental Plan for Cypremort State Park Improvements Project
The Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group has approved the Final Supplemental Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment (PDF, 116 pages) for the Cypremort Point State Park Improvements Project Modifications. The modifications include substituting the original proposed breakwater system project feature with other recreational use features. The original breakwater was constructed using another funding source.
We released the draft supplemental restoration plan and environmental assessment for this project on April 17, 2020 and accepted public comment for 30 days.
The Cypremort Improvements Project modifications, as evaluated in the final supplemental plan, also include:
- An RV campground with approximately 30 new paved pull-through campsites with sewer, water, and electrical tie-ins.
- Two mobile bathhouses with sewer, water, and electrical tie-ins; and a boat dock/fishing pier.
- The project also includes improvements to an existing rock jetty, beach reclamation, construction of a marsh boardwalk and trail, and road and parking lot repairs at the park.
The estimated total cost of the project as modified is $4.48 million.
The modifications are intended to continue the process of using restoration funding to enhance recreational activities and amenities injured by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The project is consistent with the restoration alternatives selected in the Deepwater Horizon Trustees’ 2016 Programmatic Restoration Plan.
