Prien Lake Park Boat Launch to Close March 5 for Construction
A new boat launch, concrete entrance, driveway, floating boat dock, and boardwalks are in the works
The Prien Lake Park Boat Launch, along with the park’s north and south parking lots, will close Monday, March 5, for construction.
The Prien Lake Park Boat Launch Extension Project includes the removal of the existing boat launch, entrance and driveway and the construction of a new and improved boat launch, a new concrete entrance and driveway, a new floating boat dock, new composite boardwalks, new asphalt parking areas and improved drainage. This project will last approximately 360 days - weather permitting.
“We realize that this project will be an inconvenience for our citizens, but we will do our best to keep everyone posted with the progress during construction,” said Guy Brame, Calcasieu Parish District 8 Police Juror. “The I-210 and Calcasieu Point boat launches are close by and we encourage everyone to use them during the construction period. Meanwhile, the improvements at the Prien Lake Park Boat Launch will be an outstanding upgrade for Calcasieu Parish. At the completion of the project, everyone will be pleased and proud.”
