of wildlife, nature, and the Refuge.
- Wildlife Drive is now PARTLY open from Refuge Road, however a large hole near the west end cannot be repaired until the lake level is low enough for needed culvert repairs to be made, so it is not a through road.
- Plover and Tern roads are still closed due to heavy flood damage and will not reopen until repairs can be made.
- Egret Road is open to just past the observation platform.
- Sandy Point Road and Oilfield Road are open; please watch for debris on the roads.
- All five trails are now open; there may still be debris in places.
- All areas still closed have barricades in place, for safety; please do not remove the barricades.
Please contact the Refuge, 903 786 2826 with any questions re closures.
