Voices for Lake Oahe and the Emmons County Commissioners are actively focusing on the Cattail Bay Road Improvement Project. This would consist of sub/grade prep. and paving of entire road way from Highway 1804 to the boat ramp, approximately 5.25 miles. Total estimated cost $2,088,762.00.

This project is broken down into two phases:

 Phase One:  Widen and prepare sub/grade base for paving from boat ramp (east) out to first intersection,  approximately 1.25 miles, this includes launch site and parking lot. Cost estimate $307,335.00.  Completion date fall of 2011.   

To date VFLO has secured $100,000 of SRF funds and $18,750.00 in private monies for total of  $118,750.00 of the estimated $307,335.00 for phase one.

Phase Two:  Minimal sub/grade prep. of remaining 4 miles and paving of entire project to be completed  in conjunction with schedule resurfacing of Highway 1804 from junction of Highway 13 (13 west of Linton) to the South Dakota border in 2012.

VFLO is working with District #28 Representatives Mike Brandeburg and William Kretschnar, and District #28 Senator Robert Erbele to draft a bill for introduction at the 2011 legislative session for the balance of funds to complete project.
