[ARCHIVED] Pascagoula River - Blueway Concept Development Report

Jackson County, Mississippi is proposing to complete the connection between two existing blueways including the George County Blueway and the Pascagoula River Jackson County Blueway. The Pascagoula River extends approximately 46 miles through Jackson County, and when combined with other branches, creates approximately 80 miles of navigable waterway. The proposed Pascagoula River – Jackson County Blueway Connection project would establish 65-miles of mapped and signed navigable waters by connecting the established Pascagoula River George County Blueway and Pascagoula River Jackson County Blueway and connecting paddlers to businesses and other  recreational opportunities throughout the County. 

The proposed Pascagoula River - Jackson County Blueway Connection Project includes:

  • 65 miles of fully mapped and signed Blueway
  • 22 Points of Interest
  • Kayak Launches/Landings
  • Interpretive signage
  • Restrooms
  • Parking
  • Picnic areas
  • Camping grounds
  • Mile Markers

Allen Engineering and Science, Inc. (AllenES) was retained to assist the County in developing a conceptual design for the project and an opinion of probable cost that can be utilized to assist the county in applying for project funding.
