Leighton Boat Launch Improvements

Friends of Bayou Lafourche is proud to be working with Lafourche Parish Government on the improvements being made to the “Leighton Boat Launch” in Thibodaux.

The first phase of this project was to the replace and raise the decking. By increasing the height of the dock, water will be able to flow under the dock which will prevent the constant build-up of vegetation and floating debris. This will also make the dock more user-friendly during high water levels. Additional work scheduled to take place this year include grubbing and cleaning of the bank adjacent to the launch, improved signage, and increased water access for paddlers and bayou users.

 

 

The second phase of this project will include the installation of a floating dock along the water’s edge.
